The tender documents can be collected starting August 25, while the last date for submission of bids is September 15.
The projects are envisaged within the Governorate Development Plan. In it, each governorate is allocated RO20mn during the 2021-2025 Five-Year Plan period serving as incentive for competitiveness and economic growth.
The governorate, represented by South Sharqiyah Governor’s Office, also signed a pact with Omran Group in May to develop several tourism projects.
The signing aligns with Omran’s endeavours to work in tandem with various stakeholders in order to stimulate the growth of the sultanate’s tourism sector.
Under the pact, Omran will provide technical support as well as supervise the exec-
ution of multi-phased projects being developed in the governorate. Phase 1 will see development of two parks, one in Al Suwaih spread over an area of 65,000sqm, and the other in Al Ashkharah on 14,000sqm of land.
The two parks will provide a variety of tourism and entertainment facilities, including dining areas, retail outlets, children’s playgrounds and camping sites.
“The governorate draws plenty of domestic and inbound tourists owing to its rich and diverse destinations, which we seek to exploit, jointly with various stakeholders, to further stimulate the governorate’s tourism,” said Yahya bin Badr al Mawali, Governor of South Sharqiyah.
“Our collaboration with Omran aims at upgrading tourism services and products within those destinations, which in turn will open prospects and promising opportunities for local businesses and SMEs in the governorate.”
