The Ministry of Construction, Housing and Public Municipalities announced that the priority in implementing the Ministry's projects will be given to German companies, especially in the areas of building housing units, roads and bridges.
The Minister of Construction, Housing and Public Municipalities, Benkin Rikani, told Al-Sabah on the sidelines of his meeting with a number of representatives of German companies with great potential in various sectors: The level of work of German companies in the country is very small and there are no large projects implemented by them.
And he indicated that the ministry is seeking to raise the level of work of these companies in coordination with the relevant authorities because the country is in dire need of them, however, it is the routine and administrative difficulties that have contributed to the departure of large companies from work.
Rikani stressed that the priority for the ministry's projects will be after the approval of the country's budget for the years 2023, 2024 and 2025 for German companies in order to start a new phase of cooperation and refer important projects to them in the areas of construction and construction of housing units, as well as roads and bridges, as well as waste treatment projects.
He pointed out that the next stage will witness a clear presence of these companies by reducing administrative red tape and accelerating the necessary legal and administrative mechanisms for their entry into the labor market in the country.
He added that there is only one project being implemented by the German side at the ministry, which is the construction of Al-Khader and Darraji water in Al-Muthanna governorate, after signing an agreement between the ministry and the German Development Bank under the supervision of the General Directorate of Water, pointing out that the design capacity of the project is 1,500 cubic meters per hour.
