The government of Iraq has approved the construction of 3,812 houses in south eastern Maysan governorate as part of a privately funded project.
Comprising houses of three different sizes, including 212m2, 160m2, and 127m2, the project will be completed in three years and will include services and commercial facilities, according to a Reuters report, citing Mawazine News.
The Construction and Housing Ministry would allocate land with an area of around 1.6 square km for the project.
The cabinet has asked the state National Investment Commission in Baghdad to invite developers and other investors for the project. Investors must agree to build schools, health centers and a civil defense center on an area of 10,000m2 “at their own expense”, the report added.
In February, 22 schools were built in the provinces of Anbar, Diyala, and Saladin near Baghdad in collaboration with Kuwait Relief Society.
