A Turkish company's proposals for new schools, rebuilding infrastructure, more local energy and medical facilities is likely to be accepted by the local government in the region of Wasit, south-east of Baghdad, reports Aswat al-Iraq.
I.F. Spor's plans include wind power and health projects such as a cancer treatment centre.
Other redevelopment projects in the region include oilfield sites, residential homes, a power plant, a five-star hotel and a 100-bed hospital.
Wasit has been known to strike off contractors that fail to meet reasonable standards. It has already blacklisted 19 companies for their slackness in implementing projects and removed licences from five more.
