Muscat: A management delegation of OAB led by the Chief Executive Officer Amin Al Husseini visited the bank's branches in Al Batinah Governorate.

This visit is part of the bank's comprehensive plan to engage with branch staff and customers alike, across all regions of the Sultanate.

The series of visits aim at achieving several objectives, the most important of which is to strengthen the communication and dialogue between the management and the branches.

It serves as an ideal platform to share ideas with regards to the future plans of the bank in enhancing the customer experience. Equally important, meeting a cross section of customers from the region helps the management better understand the needs of both business and individual customers.

As part of the plan, the CEO met a group of corporate customers across industry sectors. The purpose of the meeting was to receive direct feedback on the banks' services that may help in further improvements in the bank's product portfolio and service delivery channels. The meetings included discussions on the role of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) in supporting the national economy.

Amin Al Husseini remarked "The bank has established a department dedicated to offering support for the SMEs. We firmly believe that the SMEs play an active and vital role in the development of the national economy through entrepreneurial innovation".

He added that he was proud to offer facilities to SMEs through the bank's product "Tomouhi", which provides a range of financing options for SME's. He further explained, "It is a joint programme between Ministry of Commerce and Industry and Oman Development Bank, to encourage the entrepreneurial spirit amongst Omani youth with business ideas who are looking for financial support. We support fully their dynamism and look forward to a vibrant SME sector across the Sultanate."

There were proposals submitted by the branch managers in Al Batinah Governorate, for developing OAB's competitiveness in the local banking environment. The proposals were reviewed during the visit and received favourable support by the executive management.

It is worth mentioning that the bank operates through a network of 13 branches and one office in Al Batinah Governorate, namely: Sohar, Nakhal, Barka, Al Tharmad, Saham, Rustaq, Falaj Al Qabail, Al Khabourah, Al Waqaibah, A'Suwaiq, Shinas, Al Musanaah and an office in the premises of Directorate General of Commerce and Industry.

The bank has 67 branches and offices, 117 ATMs and deposit machines across the Sultanate. The bank also offers a wide range of diversified banking products and services to the customers through Retail, Corporate and Investment Banking operations.
