"The exceptional facilities at Jebel Ali Port, one of the busiest ports in the world, and Jafza are geared to add value to the expansion of the UAE’s economic and trade engagement. This new shipment for Kimoha is just the beginning of trade and commercial activities between the UAE and Israel," he added.
