The platform will invest up to $3 billion of equity to acquire assets and develop projects in the sector.

The partnership follows the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in May 2017 and the visit to India of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, and DP World Group Chairman and CEO, Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, in February 2016.

The platform will also look at opportunities beyond sea ports such as river ports and transportation, freight corridors, port-led special economic zones, inland container terminals, and logistics infrastructure including cold storage.
