The ministry stated, “The project, which will consist of numerous stages, comes in line with the aspirations of the ministry towards building the municipal function method and offering solutions at a far better level in accordance with the improvement plans in the sultanate.
“The project supports the economy and achieves integration between food security projects to make the sultanate an attractive centre for import and re-export. It also attracts the private sector into investment projects to contribute actively to the development of production and the establishment of added-value industries, in addition to deriving economic and commercial benefit from Omani ports. It will also provide employment opportunities for young Omanis, as well as support SMEs.”
The ministry added, “The selection of the wilayat of Suwaiq for the establishment of this project was because it enjoys a location linking a number of governorates of the sultanate, and the wilayat has recently witnessed the commercial operations of Suwaiq port, which will in turn contribute to the activation of economic movement and receiving various types of goods, including livestock.”
