NEW YORK: DP World's chairman urged African leaders to lift barriers on trade after the global ports operator last year pushed to expand its footprint in the continent where it faces some opposition to its operations.

Removing trade barriers, increasing connectivity between countries and developing infrastructure are essential for Africa's economic emergence, Sultan bin Sulayem, chairman of DP World said at the Africa Emergence Conference in Dakar, Sengal, report agencies.

“The removal of trade barriers is very important," Mr bin Sulayem said. "We believe in the viability of Africa, we believe in investing in the continent."
