Muscat: In partnership with Dhofar Municipality, National Bank of Oman (NBO) is bringing thousands of people together to celebrate culture, art, and sports as Gold Sponsor of this year’s edition of Salalah Tourism Festival. The Bank’s participation in the annual festivities is a clear demonstration of how the finance and the tourism sectors can work together to advance national interests and economic growth.
Hassan Abdul Amir Shaban, General Manager - Chief Government Banking Officer at NBO said: “We view ourselves as partners with the Government, working hand in hand together for our beautiful country and its hospitable people. Our presence at Khareef underscores our role and responsibility to support the Ministry of Tourism’s efforts in showcasing Oman as an all-year tourist destination.”
From a lush landscape bursting with shades of green to a spectacular stretch of pristine coastline to people who are deeply rooted in their traditions, Dhofar speaks for itself. The festival has become a staple in the Sultanate’s annual calendar of events and acts as an interactive platform for promoting the beauty of Oman while connecting with people of different ages, cultures, and backgrounds.
During the 47-day festival, NBO is running a number of social, recreational, and edutainment activities for children and adults to demonstrate how it’s innovative financial products, services, and delivery channels can add more convenience, ease, and value to everyday life. The bank’s representatives are also available on hand to address any inquires visitors may have.
