Nineveh Investment Commission announced this week that it had signed investment contracts with two German companies to build tourist facilities on the banks of the Tigris River.
Jabor Abed Rabu, Chairman of the Commission, told AKnews that the companies involved are Zalmania and Backmana, but the value of the contracts were not disclosed.
"The two companies will build tourist facilities next July," said Rabu, adding that “Nineveh Council will provide all facilities and support necessary requirements to facilitate the work of these companies and complete the project."
"The Council also received delegations from other German companies to discuss other opportunities to invest in the city."
Mosul, 405 km north of Baghdad, has many monuments, and religious sites, as well as forests, but they are neglected and suffer from lack of services.
