Business bosses hosted by Oman Air discuss ways boost economy

Muscat: In an initiative to encourage investment in the Sultanate, Oman Air hosted a large number of Oman’s public and private sector chief executives in an important meeting.
Participants at the meeting, which was initiated following a suggestion by Oman Air’s Chairman, Darwish Al Balushi, discussed ways to improve business methods, policies and systems and encourage further investment in the economy of Oman.
Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer, Paul Gregorowitsch, opened the event by welcoming the guests and thanking them for taking part.
He went on to encourage delegates to address the challenges currently facing the nation, its economy and its business sector.
He further expressed the hope that delegates would establish a unified and positive vision that both addressed the aspirations of all parties and maintained a focus on quality.
“Oman—and, indeed, the entire GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) region—are currently facing significant economic challenges. The key to overcoming those challenges is forging a strong and productive partnership between the country’s public and private sectors. By working together, learning from each other’s experiences and drawing on the vast amount of expertise available within each sector, we can make an important contribution to ensuring that the Omani economy remains strong and resilient. The initiative taken by Darwish Bin Ismail Al Balushi therefore met a great response”, he said.
“Oman Air is honoured to welcome so many distinguished and eminent leaders from a wide range of Government departments and businesses”, he added.
"The delegates took part in a healthy debate and had a robust exchange of ideas on crucial topics, such as workforce effectiveness, enhancing competitiveness, improving efficiency and developing purchasing synergies”, he further said
“The findings that we jointly arrived at, together with those developed by working groups, which will meet following this meeting, will be presented to high ranking Government officials. We hope that our contribution assists Oman’s regulatory authorities in developing their policies and deciding on the future course of action,” Gregorowitsch concluded.
