He delivered a stimulating speech addressing the awardees and the other employees in attendance wherein he said: “A large portion of our business belongs to the service sector…and while most large companies can deliver almost the same range of services, the differentiator is the PEOPLE, I have always believed that our people are our biggest asset and we need to further develop our focus on this asset.” Dr Al Barwani highlighted the inspiration he derived from His Majesty`s plan for Oman`s economic future in “Vision 2020” and contribution to the employment of Omanis during the 40 year period of His Majesty’s reign.
