New amendment regarding Port Said East and West reductions in Suez Canal Economic Zone

Dear Sirs,

We feel we must bring you new developments that we hope will positively entice members of the marine community to bring back/continue calling to Egyptian ports. The General Authority for the Suez Canal Economic Zone has now amended their decree No. 127/2017 by amending and issuing the decree No.121/2018 which aims at reducing the port dues for the vessels calling Port Said East and West ports for both containers and Ro-Ro vessels.

We have prepared a translation of both decrees bearing in mind that the new decree No. 121/2018 has amended the earlier decree and it has already come into force.

Please click here to read the law and its translation:
Ministerial Decree 121-2018
Ministerial Decree 127-2017
