DUQM, Oman, Apr. 17 (Xinhua) -- The construction commencement ceremony for the Wanfang commercial-residential complex was held Monday in the China-Oman Industrial Park in Duqm.

Lee Cheekhian, CEO of Special Economic Zone Authority in Duqm, presided over the ceremony, which was also attended by Salim Al Sulaimani, CEO of Tatweer, and Sha Yanju, chairman of Oman Wanfang.

A the ceremony, 16 heavy construction equipments lined up in the light industrial area of the China-Oman Industrial Park in Duqm, about 500 km from Omani capital Muscat.

The Wanfang commercial-residential complex project, covering a total area of 40,000 square meters, comprises four three-storey commercial buildings, one five-storey office building and one five-storey commercial office building.

In the first phase, it plans to build a five-storey building with a construction area of 15,000 square meters.

Cheekhian spoke highly of the project and wished it a success with the support of bilateral governments.

"Providing high-standard supporting facilities for the staff is an important part of the construction of China-Oman Industrial Park," said Sha, whose company is the developer and operator of the park.

Under a deal signed in May 2016 between China and Oman, the park, covering an area of about 11 hectares, will be built with a total investment of 10.7 billion U.S. dollars from Oman Wanfang, a subsidiary of Wanfang China from the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region in northwest of China.
