Several major project announcements are expected shortly in Diwaniyah, according to a report from ConstructionWeekOnline.
These including projects attached to the $1.35bn Al-Diwaniyah International Commercial Airport (pictured), which is to be built by Kuwait’s Al-Nasriyah Company, and is due to be completed by the end of 2017.
Other projects include a $210-million cement plant, and five other investment contracts worth around $250 million.
The deputy chairman of the Al-Diwaniyah Investment Commission, Hussein Al-Yassiri, is quoted as saying:
“We are also preparing the designs for an industrial zone. Our previous projects concentrated on services but the planned projects for this year are devoted to industry, trade and development. Besides the airport, they could exceed $1 billion.”
