A French company is planning to build a replica of the Eiffel Tower in Sulaymaniyah.
But according to reports from Zawya, the structure will be a mere three storeys high. The project will include shops selling French products, and will feature laser lights showing the flags of Kurdistan and France.
The name of the French investor behind this project has not yet been revealed.
“In line with investment laws in Kurdistan, foreign investors are asked to carry out a tourism project in the city where they intend to invest,” said Yousuf Yassin, director of Sulaymaniyah municipality.
