(MENAFN Press) ALARGAN International Real Estate Company has announced the launch of its new project in the Sultanate of Oman with a total cost of OMR 200 million. The project falls under the integrated touristic complex classification and is comprised of various amenities including hotels, a traditional souk and commercial strips that are surrounding a manmade lagoon.

The announcement came during the Tourism Investment Conference which was held in Oman last week. The sessions brought out important recommendations notably those concerning the private sector's participation in the development of projects with the state government.

During the rendering of the touristic city project, Mr. Khaled Al-Mashaan Chairman and Managing Director of ALARGAN International Real Estate Company mentioned: "The project constitutes an important addition to tourism in the Sultanate of Oman. It is an integrated city providing services to Oman's citizens and residents, and will play a key role in attracting investments to the Sultanate. The project is aimed at creating jobs for approximately 2 thousand people.

He also stated that the project is located in the Abu Al -Nakheel area, behind Al-Naseem Park, which may lead to officially naming the project "Al -Nakheel City." He added that this integrated touristic city constitutes hotels, standalone villas with direct sea views, as well as one, two and three bedroom apartments catering to the various needs of all segments within Oman's community. In addition, the city is centred on a man made swimmable lagoon, which allows visitors to enjoy the lagoon's shores as well as many different water sports and activities.

Mr. Al-Mashaan also commended the continued support and cooperation shown by the Omani government both to the local and foreign investors, including the services offered to visiting tourists. He also highlighted the touristic potentials enjoyed by the Sultanate, particularly the encouraging investment climate in the tourism sector, pointing to the importance of tourism as an industry that can be relied upon in increasing the country's Gross Domestic Product. The total value added to GDP from the sector stood at OMR 689.7 million, while the number of tourists reached approximately 2.8 million.
