Nawar Abdulhadi: How do you assess the relationship between the oil and gas sector, petrochemicals and electricity with other sectors in Basra?
Mr Al Fares: The relationship between the oil and gas sector, petrochemicals and electricity with other sectors is unfortunately been inconsistent, sometimes we see the ministry as a hindrance to the implementation of some of the strategic projects that could be saving us from the financial and economic crisis.
One of the projects, the Nebras Petrochemicals project, has been stalled because of the lack of coordination between the Ministry of Industry and the Ministry of Oil.
The most important reasons for the disruption of other development sectors is the nature of the relationship between these sectors, Iraq is losing and the absence of coexistence weakens all sectors.
Nawar Abdulhadi: Does this rise to your ambition? How can further cooperation be achieved?
Mr Al Fares: Therefore we hope that international Conferences will be held in the future on the land of Basra province, specialized exhibitions and workshops, both technical and economic, so that Basra becomes the focus of the world's attention.
Nawar Abdulhadi: How do you describe the relationship with other provinces, in the construction sector as well as other sectors?
