Sur Industrial Estate, one of the estates managed by the Oman Public Establishment for Industrial Estates (PEIE), is organising a seminar to highlight the immense investment opportunities available in the fisheries industry across the Sultanate.
The seminar will be held on June 5 at Sur College of Applied Sciences under the patronage of Sheikh Abdullah bin Mustahil Shamas, Governor of Al Sharqiyah South.
The event aims to familiarise investors and businessmen with the services offered by Sur Industrial Estate and the investment opportunities in fisheries industries available in the governorates of Al Sharqiyah South and Al Sharqiyah North.
The event, which is organised in co-operation with the directorate general of fisheries research at the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, directorate general of industry at the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, and Sur University College, with the participation of a number of experts in fisheries industry from Sultan Qaboos University.
The fisheries sector is gaining a lot of interest from government institutions as it contributes vitally to the development of the national economy and creates job opportunities for Omani youth, said the organisers.
