Investment map leaked in the local press
Investment map leaked in the local press: Al Mal has released copies of what it says are projects up for grabs as part of the investment map drawn up by the Investment and International Cooperation Ministry. The purported copies are extensive and cover a wide range of sectors and geographies including projects in the New Administrative Capital (pdf), national projects (pdf), ports and infrastructure (pdf), real estate (pdf), tourism (pdf), energy, industry, and waste management (pdf). The list details the location of each project, the size in terms of both investment size and land area, the tendering process, the government agency that has jurisdiction over the project, and any specific benefits investors could receive as part of it. We have yet to ascertain if this is the full list of 600 projects the ministry plans to put out there. But, as we noted yesterday, the ministry is still looking for about a month to finalize the list.
