Saif Bin Abdullah Al Yahmadi, Director-General of Housing, at Al Dhahirah governorate said that the road project to link Oman to Saudi Arabia will open up a direct trade route between the two countries. Al Yahmadi cleared that the proposed road, which passes through the Empty Quarter will facilitate trade between Saudi Arabia and Oman and also pave the way for the economic development of Al Dahirah region. Currently, Oman and Saudi Arabia are connected only via the UAE for trade, Oman Tribune reported. The government will build border post in Ibri, since most of the traffic and cargo will pass through the Empty Quarter once the road is opened, Al Yahmadi added. He said the government will prepare a general plan for the area proposed and welcomed proposals.
