Next week will see the signing of a contract with an Omani company to set up a number of projects in al-Diwaniya, the province governor, Hamed al-Khodari, said on Saturday.
“The Omani company al-Taher will sign a contract next week to build a trade center under the name Diwaniya Mall over an area of 40,000 square meters, including a large parking lot and a fuel station, in the central part of the city,” Khodari told Aswat al-Iraq, not revealing the costs of these projects.
“The Omani delegation will get abreast of other investment fields, namely housing, energy and tourism, to consider ventures in the province,” he added.
Diwaniya lies 180 km south of the Iraqi capital Baghdad.
