Muscat, 16 Dec (ONA)—The Ministry of Finance today requested specialized Omani companies to submit their expression of interest (EOI) in a project to operate and develop Liwa fishing jetty, using an online application form available in the Ministry’s portal. The project is carried out within the context of partnership between the public and private sectors.
The Finance Ministry looks forward to receiving detailed applications from interested companies, both as individual firms or consortia within specific terms. The deadline for applications is 27 December 2021.
Within a similar context, the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Water Resources will coordinate to implement a local investment programme aimed to upgrade the sectors of fisheries and food industries.
The Ministry of Finance oversees the application of the Government-Private Partnership Law, which seeks to encourage the private sector to invest in infrastructure, public services and project (establishment and operation) cost cutting to help ease the pressure on the budget.
The programme falls within the purview of Oman Vision 2040 and its goals of generating opportunities for small and medium enterprises and the local business community in the sector of ports.
