MUSCAT – In line with its strong commitment to promoting food security and the micro and small business sector, Bank Muscat, the leading financial services provider in the Sultanate, participated in the eighth edition of the Omani Dates Festival, which was recently held at the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The festival, which was inaugurated by His Excellency Qais bin Mohammed Al Yousef, Minister of Commerce, Industry and Investment Promotion, aimed to promote and support encourage Omani farmers and businesses focusing on dates-related products. A number of farmers as well as owners of date-processing units from across the Sultanate of Oman participated in the week-long event.
