Work on these projects is expected to be completed during the fourth quarter of this year. Besides, completion of infrastructure work this year shall contribute to an increase in the number of localised companies, attract more foreign companies, and consequently offer job opportunities for the nationals from the Wilayat of Samayil and the nearby wilayats as well,” he remarked.
