Oman economy to come under focus
Muscat, September 25, 2010
Economy of Oman will be up for discussion at an upcoming event to be attended by more than 200 experts from the sultanate’s corporate sector.
Oman Economic Review, in association with Capital Market Authority, will hold the second annual OER Debate at the Muscat Securities Market on October 25.
"This year's event has evolved into an integrated business symposium which encompasses the key themes that form the business environment of today and tomorrow," said Sandeep Sehgal, chief executive of United Media Services.
“Carrying the theme ‘The way ahead – Road to Vision 2020’, the forum's discussions are expected to be dominated by the numerous socio-economic challenges facing the country,” he added.
The event covers not only globalisation and economics, human capital, motivation and diplomacy but also has a strong focus on the future, examining a new age in leadership, the changing business landscape, and economic trends impacted by the slowdown in major world markets, a statement said.
The diverse lineup of panelists will share key insights into the way businesses will have to shoulder new responsibilities dictated by the new age social environment they would be operating in, it added.
Nima Abu Wardeh, presenter of BBC’s Middle East Business Report, will moderate the debate.
As part of the proceedings, the OER Top 20 companies in Oman will be awarded for innovation and leadership in their fields, according to the statement. – TradeArabia News Service
