Over a hectare of seabed has been dredged in preparation for the largest port in the country to be constructed.

And there’s a lot to build…

“Currently, we are two months ahead of schedule”, said Mr. Ila Mari, a representative from the Independent Public Business Corporation (IPBC).

The IPBC is taking the responsibility in making sure that the construction is on schedule.
