Heritage Bank Plc has kindled a partnership deal Stakeholders at the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) to grow the maritime sector and African economy.
The IAPH occupies an influential seat at the table of the International Maritime Organization, with both shipping and ports.
At International Association of Ports and Harbors Conference which held on Tuesday 4 April in Abuja, the bank in a statement pinpointed its drive to partner with Stakeholders at the IAPH
“Ports represent gateways. They are also essential for sustaining and improving more robust and diverse growth in African economies through the import and export of manufactured goods and other products.”
“Likewise, the hinterland is a terrestrial space on which a transport terminal, like a port, sells its services and interacts with its users.”
“Generally, the higher port connectivity is, the more attractive it is to facilitate cargo transportation and reduce transportation costs and time. Port connectivity is very complex, and it can be more useful if analysed for more productivity by using comprehensive analysis.”
“This is why we partnered with major stakeholders at the International Association of Ports and Harbors.”
“Heritage Bank is committed to creating, preserving and transfering wealth across generations.”
