The Special Economic Zone at Duqm (SEZAD) announced the readiness of a group of lands allocated in the masterplan for various industrial projects that will be developed in the Zone.

SEZAD is also working to enhance the infrastructure of these lands by providing electricity, water and gas services to get them ready for investors who are interested to start their industrial projects in the Zone.

The industrial lands levelling and grading project comes in response to the ongoing growth witnessed by SEZAD, with the anticipated completion of installing the modern cranes in the Port of Duqm and the arrival of the gas main pipeline. This complements the package of facilities and incentives offered by the Zone to investors, serving to expedite completing the investors’ land usufruct applications and procedures to start their investment projects.
