Essam Khalaf, Minister of Works, Municipal Affairs and Urban Planning, said that the agency of Agriculture and Maritime Resources is in the process of redeveloping and maintaining the agency’s building, as it will allocate a dedicate office to review the marine licenses at the agency’s headquarters in Budaiya to facilitate and mitigate the visitors.

In his reply to the proposal of the Council of Northern Governorate, he mentioned that the engineering drawings and the final sketches are currently being coordinated and studied with the Works Affairs.

He pointed out that the authority concerned with issuing sailing licenses and boat ownership is the Registration and Licensing Division at the Coast Guard headquarters in Sitra, and this does not fall within the jurisdiction of the said agency.
