ERBIL — Kurdistan Region Prime Minister Masrour Barzani on Tuesday paid a visit to the Duhok International Airport project to pave the way for the resumption of the work to boost economy, trade, and tourism in the region.
“Prime Minister Barzani closely examined the site, assessing it as a strategic link for Duhok to other provinces and strengthening foreign economic ties for Kurdistan Region,” an official press release from the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) said.
The construction of Duhok International Airport was suspended in the wake of multiple crises which hit the region after the emergence of the Islamic State (IS).
“Today’s visit was to go over this project and process the contracts in order to resume the building work of the airport. It is important for Duhok and the wider region,” Prime Minister Barzani said.
He said that after reviewing his visit, an announcement on when the work will resume will be made soon.
