The Minister of Fisheries and Maritime Economy of Senegal, Oumar Guèye, accompanied by the Ambassador of Senegal to Portugal and several Senegalese specialists, visited the Port of Sines on last June 4 in order to be acquainted with this deep water port.

Under the responsibility of the Ministry of the Sea, the visit was accompanied by the Secretary of State for Fisheries, José Apolinário, and the delegation was received by the two Members of the APS’ Board of Directors, Eduardo Bandeira and José Soares, who presented the competitiveness factors and the different characteristics of the Port of Sines, either in terms of operational and physical areas as in technological aspects. AICEP Member of the Board, Helena Malcata, also attended the meeting.

The delegation had the opportunity to visit both the Port of Sines Traffic Control Center where the functioning of the Port Single Window was presented, and the Terminal XXI in operation. Another area that attracted interest was the area of the fish farm.

We must recall that the Port of Sines is weekly linked to the Port of Dakar in Senegal, a very important service for the enhancement of the commercial relationship between the two countries.
