Minister: Great Importance of Salalah Port Development (Oman)
H. E. Dr. Ahmed bin Mohammed al Futaisi, the Minister for Transport and Communication, stated that the Salalah port development program is extremely important for the whole country, reports zawya.com.
He said: “The expansion at this vital port is part of a wider vision for future projects for the port which are currently being studied. These future plans include new docks to accommodate more berths for larger vessels.”
The setting up of the new docks will require the construction of a new breakwater, according to the primary studies.
“We are going to rehabilitate the area to be able to serve businessmen there, as well as those from Salalah Free Zone. There is a vision to execute more projects at Port of Salalah in the coming years,” concluded the Minister.
