investment could be one of the largest ever made by China in the Middle East. China National Machinery Industry or Sinomach and China

NFC planned to produce 1.6 million metric tons of alumina and 700,000

reported. "What we have fits very well with what China is looking for,"
said Amr Al-Dabbagh, governor of the Saudi Arabian General Investment
Authority. "We have cheap energy and we have a strategic location."
