Omani authorities look to expand Duqm

Muscat: Authorities have confirmed plans for a major scale - up of the Duqm port project aimed at leveraging its strategic geographic location to secure the long-term development of the Wusta region and the wider national economy, reports Kanoo Shipping Agencies.
The upgrade will create adequate capacity for future expansions of the port, as well as, enable the handling of larger cargo vessels.
More importantly, it will allow for a significant enhancement of commercial operations at Duqm with an eye on the potentially huge cargo volume expected to be generated by investments in major industrial, petrochemical, mineral and fisheries projects, as well as a free trade zone next door to the port.  [14/08/08]
