Commenting on Milaha’s participation at Seatrade Maritime Middle East, Mr. Al-Mannai said: “We are excited to be taking part in yet another Seatrade Maritime Middle East event. This is an excellent opportunity for us to meet industry leaders, decision makers, and stakeholders to brainstorm on key issues that are currently relevant to the maritime industry in the region and the world. Today’s uncertain global economic environment has created challenges for all maritime sectors which means that now is the time for all of us to rethink the way we do business.
