The planning commission of the provincial council of Baghdad announced the construction of an industrial city of approximately 2,000 donums (500 hectares) in the Nahrawan area, south of the Iraqi capital.
According to AKnews, the project will be built by the Iraqi company Majd al-Ard, and will cost around $250 million USD (293.3 billion IQD). It is scheduled to be finished within one year.
“The industrial city will meet modern international standards and it will also be environmentally friendly to restore the beauty of our capital Baghdad,” said Committee Chairman Mohammed al-Rabaie.
Economists say that the industrial production in Iraq has dropped by 66% after 2003, with approximately 13,000 workers being laid off.

Phase 3?? Lol.

Phase three of Iraq's Nahrawan complex to commence
by CW Staff on Aug 6, 2012

The third phase of construction at the Nahrawan industrial complex is to begin in the very near future, according to Iraq’s Ministry of Industry.

The $250m industrial city located in the Nahrawan district to the south of Baghdad was originally announced by the council last October.

“The Directorate will invite companies related to the Ministry including al-Faris Company and the General Company for Design and Industrial Construction to complete the required works,” said Hadi al-Hassan, directorate general for industrial development, AIN has reported.

“This project is part of the investment plan for 2010-2011. The work is continuing in accordance with the contracts signed with the associated companies.”

yes its in baghdad.

and this project will get built because the governorate/mayorality of baghdad want that juicy piece of real estate in the heart of the city...

but there will be a war before they clear out the tenants.

as for "compensation" the new workshops are supposed to be their compensation. I think its only fair if the government gave them workshops 50% bigger than their current units, in addition to being newly built with decent facilities etc...

^^ Yeah that's what I was gonna say.... as compensation they can just give them new workshops in the industrial city. But then I thought transportation might be a problem..... since it's way outside of Baghdad city..... they would be forced to buy cars while most of them probably can't afford to.

العراق يُكمل المدينة الصناعية في النهروان في 2015 -

Zawya 23 01 2013 تخطط الحكومة العراقية إلي الانتهاء من مشروع المدينة الصناعية في النهروان، فى العام 2015، بتكلفة 232 مليون دولار، وعلى مساحة قدرها 2000000 متر ، وفقا لما ما صرح به لزاوية مصدر رسمي في هيئة استثمار بغداد. أضافت مسئولة العلاقات العامة في الهيئة، مروه الموسوي إن "المشروع يعد من المشاريع الإستراتيجية الكبيرة كونه يجمع كافة المدن الصناعية في بغداد، لتكون مشابهة لمناطق التجارة الحرة حيث يحتوي على دائرة كمارك ومصارف ومخازن حديد وخشب وسيراميك ومواد إنشائية إضافة الى مخازن لوزارة التجارة"، موضحة إن "المشروع سيواكب ما يماثله من مشاريع موجودة في الدول المجاورة ودول العالم" . المشروع ستنفذه شركة (مجد الأرض) للتجارة العامة والاستثمارات العقارية ، بمدة تصل إلي ثلاثة أعوام، مقسمة الى 6 مراحل كل مرحلة 6 أشهر, بحسب الموسوي. أشارت أيضا أن المشروع يحتوي على 2200 مخزن بمساحات مختلفة ما بين 3000 متر مربع إلي 500 متر مربع لكل مخزن. فضلاً عن إن المشروع سيحتوي علي مجموعة مطاعم بدرجة متفاوتة ، ومصرف وبنايات لفروع المصارف ، بالإضافة الى بنية تحتية متكاملة ومولدات كهربائية عملاقة ومبنى إدارة . يرى الخبير الاقتصادي الدكتور ضرغام محمد، عضو المنتدى الاقتصادي العراقي، أن إنشاء مثل هذه المدن الصناعية، هو تجربة متطورة معمول بها في الدول المتقدمة، وإن إنشاء مثل هذه المدن ضروري جدا من عدة نواحي: اولها انها تنعكس ايجابا على واقع الصناعة المتدهور في العراق، ويجعلها ذات مردود اقتصادي جيد، وتشكل عامل جذب للأيدي العاملة، وتسهم في تخفيف نسب التلوث داخل المدن ، فضلا عن أن تلك المدن ستحتاج الى مصادر جديدة للطاقة خاصة بها مما يستدعي إنشاء محطات للطاقة. كتبت ماجدة محسن © Zawya 2013 Copyright

this project is very important as finishing this project means they can empty out a MASSIVE chunk of prime central baghdad from all the workshops (sheikh omar, nahdha etc...) to these areas... then the baghdad governorate can sell those prime lands to the "highest bidder" for real-estate redevelopment fetching a minimum of $1500/m2 for the land in auction... (we are talking an area of mayb 5 million square meters, that will fetch them at least $5Bn for the land alone... conservatively... and imagine what % of that $5Bn will end up in the pockets of members of the governorate council members in order for the real estate companies to get their hands on that prime real estate....).

so spending a couple of hundred million relocating the pesky workshops is a drop in the ocean...

^^ interesting , did not know this :)

but to be honest, I see so much empty undeveloped land (on google map and the likes) right in the heart of Baghdad (even very close to the Tigris !), and no one is even bothering to develop them.. so it makes me wonder if such huge demand does really exist ?
