    Engie receives delegation from Sezad

    Engie recently received an official delegation from the Special Economic Zone Authority of Duqm (Sezad), led by Yahya bin Said Al Jabri, Chairman of Sezad and Chairman of the Capital Market Authority (CMA) in Paris.

    Sezad, located in the Duqm area, 550km south of Muscat, is the biggest special economic zone in the Middle East region, and includes a port, a ship dry dock, various industrial complexes, a commercial and tourism area, and a logistics services area. Overall, Sezad will expand over 2000km². The area, which will be fully operational in 2030, aims to become a regional logistical hub around ship maintenance activities, trans-shipment of containers, processing and export of minerals and hydrocarbons, thanks to its strategic position, on the Silk Road and near Omani oil and gas fields.
