It forms part of the objective under Eshraqa that is focussed on optimising potential for learning and developing across all trades and professions in response to the country's manpower requirements. This is an initiative that we are happy to be partnering with OPAL on, as the organisation shares our own philosophy on enhancing learning, leadership and career development opportunities for Omani youth that show promise.'
