Increased trade with India

Wilhelmsen Ships Service has appointed Prean Pather to the position of Area Director of East and South Africa area, covering Egypt, Djibouti, Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, South Africa, Namibia and the Islands off East Africa.

Prean, who will be located in Durban, South Africa, was previously General Manager of Wilhelmsen Ships Service in South Africa, Kenya and Tanzania. He holds a Diploma in Container Management and is continuing his studies towards obtaining his degree specializing in Entrepreneurship through the University of South Africa.

Prean has been instrumental in establishing a strong sales and operations organization in the region.

He says, “The trade relations between India and South Africa continue to grow from strength to strength. We are seeing a lot more exports of commodities such as coal being exported from South Africa to India. The same is happening in Mozambique with many projects in the pipeline for coal being controlled by large Indian companies.”

Prean adds, “Africa plays an important part in the global economy and as many of the countries in Africa are developing economies, we expect to see much better GDP growth rates in the years to come. South Africa, as an emerging market, has a very positive impact on the whole continent.”
