Groundbreaking event for Duqm refinery

MUSCAT: Duqm Refinery and Petrochemical Industries will celebrate the laying of the foundation stone for its construction project on Thursday.

The importance of the project lies in its ability to provide new jobs for Omani youth and lay the foundations for the future development of investment in petrochemical industry.
