The National Project Management, Operation and Maintenance Organization in Public Entities (Mashroat) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture to raise efficiency of its facility and asset management including its portfolio of 51 contracts across 1,800 project sites throughout the Kingdom.
