Oman's PDO funds fish market construction in Adam, Yanqui
Projects follow an Ibri fish market PDO opened earlier this year, and a Bahla market it unveiled in April
State-owned Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) said it was funding the construction of two fish markets in Adam and Yanqul in line with plans by Oman's Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries to boost the sultanate's agricultural sector.
Each project features storage facilities and an ice factory.
PDO opened the fish market it funded in Ibri earlier this year, and in April 2019, said it would build another facility in Bahla.
Commenting on the community-focused investments, managing director of PDO, Raoul Restucci, said: “Our social investment programme aims to contribute to the sustainable development of Omani communities."
Under Phase 2 of its community infrastructure projects, PDO is building 13 new majlis areas in Bahla, Thumrait, Al Jazir, Manah, Haima, and Adam.
The organisation has signed 15 memorandums of understanding to work on these projects with the support of undersecretary of Oman's Ministry of Interior, Eng Khalid bin Hilal Al Busaidi.
