Iraq’s Ministry of Water Resources has reportedly invited National Engineering Services of Pakistan (NESPAK) to participate in an irrigation project.
The Express Tribune reports that the project, called “East Gharaf”, will provide sustainable irrigation and drainage facilities for about 390,000 acres of land in the general areas of Nassiriya and Kut.
State-owned NESPAK had worked on a number of irrigation projects in Iraq in early 1980s.
NESPAK was established in 1973 as a private limited company by the Government of Pakistan. It currently has a staff of 4207 employees, including 3096 highly qualified engineers, architects, planners, geologists, economists and other professionals.
