An industrial city project in Iraq’s Anbar Governorate is 84 percent complete, a government official said.

Abdul Zahra Al-Hindawi, a spokesperson for the Planning Ministry said the industrial city, spread over an area of 3,000 acres in the Kilometre 35 area, is designed to cater to medium and light industries. 

Hindawi said basic infrastructure and power, water and wastewater networks for the industrial units, external fencing and administrative offices have been completed.

The remaining projects scheduled for completion as follows:

• A 3,600 cubic meters per day wastewater treatment plant, and a rainwater pumping station by early 2025 together with remaining civil, mechanical and electrical works.
