On Saturday a Lamborghini sports car will be auctioned, with bids starting at 1 rial.

Sandan Development celebrated the official opening of Madinat Sandan on Thursday, under the patronage of His Excellency Sheikh Saif Bin Mohammed Al-Shabibi, Minister of Housing, as the first fully-integrated city for light industries managed by the private sector in the Sultanate of Oman.

His Excellency toured the city and attended the various activities including auto showrooms, workshops, and construction services, and said that Madinat Sandan represents a modern model for complete industrial cities — as those in charge of them were keen to provide all service facilities, including government services related to doing business, which play a significant role in stimulating commercial and industrial development.

Site owners Sandan Development say Madinat Sandan is expected to receive more than 15,000 visitors daily, along with thousands of workers within the city, with 1,200 industrial units and 1,200 residential units.

Madinat Sandan includes the largest market of used car showrooms in the Sultanate, along with other services supporting the automotive industry, such as insurance offices, finance offices, Sanad offices, part and accessories shops, and maintenance workshops for checking and repairing cars, four-wheel car garages, tire and polishing stores, ornamental and accessory stores, in addition to other commercial and industrial activities.
