(MENAFN- Muscat Daily) Muscat- As part of the government efforts to diversify the economy as per the Ninth Five-Year Plan (2016-20), the Ministry of Oil and Gas and the Public Authority for Mining are organising energy and mining labs, supported by the Implementation Support and Follow-up Unit.
The labs will be attended by representatives from several relevant entities from both public and private sectors, academics, specialised experts, and representatives from the civil society.
The labs will kick off on Sunday and run for six weeks in Oman Institute for Oil & Gas, Innovation Park Muscat, near Sultan Qaboos University.
Through these labs, the ministry and authority aim at activating the enablers, exploiting the resources of energy and mining sectors, and overcoming the difficulties both sectors face, in order to develop initiatives and projects that enhance the contribution of these sectors in the economy. This will be achieved by defining the strategic intention which will be discussed during the labs, then translated into achievable initiatives and projects that will be implemented according to a specific timeline and a clear scientific methodology.
The energy strategy includes enhancing energy security by diversifying energy sources to generate electricity without gas. This can be achieved by finding alternative energy sources.
