Iraq’s central governorate Babil intends to offer more than 20 new projects to investors in 2017 to increase income and create more jobs for citizens, an Iraqi newspaper said.
Babil’s Investment Commission will announce the projects after the local government approves the allocation of land for them, Arabic daily Al-Mada said.
“We have plans to offer more than 20 investment opportunities in various sectors,” the Commission’s Director Nasr Al-Anzi told the paper.
He did not provide details of the projects apart from saying they are intended to boost national income, create jobs for citizens and support domestic development.
He called on the local government to quickly allocate land for investors so that the contracts could be signed soon.
