The Wassit Investment Commission (WIC) has granted an investment licence in the health sector worth more than 6 billion dinars [$5m], chairman of the WIC said on Tuesday.
“The licence was given to an Iraqi investor to establish a hospital in Kut, which will include 100 beds and five surgery rooms with modern equipment,” Sadeq Howeidi told Aswat al-Iraq news agency.
“The hospital will be built in 18 months,” he added.
Kut, the capital of Wassit, lies 180 km south of Baghdad.
