Sohar plans agricultural terminal

Muscat: Sohar Freezone ceo Jamal Aziz has claimed Sohar Port and Freezone is most important link in Oman’s commercial logistics industry and a “vital contributor” to the diversification and globalisation of the economy.

As part of the company’s mid-year review, Jamal Aziz highlighted plans for a national food reserve and dedicated agricultural terminal, as well as air and rail links. Moreover, a deal with one of Oman’s largest business houses, Saud Bahwan, will see Sohar’s automotive cluster grow to 200,000 cars annually — bringing global manufacturers Lexus, Kia, Ford, Toyota, and Daihatsu to the region.  [03/08/14]
