February 3, 2019

DUBAI (Reuters) – The chairman of Dubai’s DP World said on Sunday the port operator was facing a challenging 2019 and the U.S.-China trade dispute had created uncertainty in the market.

Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem said he expected both sides to reach an agreement and that the company would be able to cope, whatever happened with U.S.-China trade negotiations.
