Parliament's energy committee
member Zahra al-Bajari called on the Minister of Industry and Minerals to
uncover the reasons why it rejected the merger of Basra-based State Company for
Petrochemical Industries with the Ministry of Oil.
Bajari said in a press statement that the work of both the ministry and the company is close, adding that the merge will contribute to develop industry and support the national economy.
She also called for supporting the company's employees, adding that the company is going through stages of disruption, which harm the national industries. She pointing out that the company employees suffer from neglect, despite of their competency.
The State Company for Petrochemical Industries was one of the best companies in the Middle East, Bajari said, adding that all ministries and state institutions rely on the company's national product.
