Muscat: As part of its commitment to support Sultanate’s nationalisation plan and offer opportunities to Omani Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), Orpic recently conducted its first in-country value (ICV) roadshow in Sohar.
The event conducted under the patronage of Eng. Ahmed bin Hassan Al Dheeb, undersecretary of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry and in association with CB&I and CTCI Corporation, who have been awarded the engineering, procurement and contracting (EPC) award for steam cracker and utilities for Liwa plastics industries Complex (LPIC).
The day-long event discussed Orpic as well as CB&I and CTCI Corporation’s investment impact on Oman’s economy through the LPIC project.
Speaking at the event, Dr Hilal Al Hinai, general manager (Corporate Support Services) of Orpic, said, “As one of the transformational projects being undertaken by Orpic, we are committed to serving Oman with pride. At Orpic, we support SMEs directly via business operations, ring fence certain tenders specifically for Omani SMEs, which in turn will impact Oman’s GDP through the payment of profits and salaries, and employment opportunities for individuals.”
This is one of the four ICV roadshows that Orpic will conduct in the coming months, which will support and offer Omani SMEs a chance to partner with the LPIC project.
