Noting the tremendous support received from collaborators and partners in the Made in Oman campaign, Qais bin Mohammed Al Yousef, Minister of Commerce, Industry & Investment Promotion said: “We are proud of Omani products and where they have reached in the global market. And it is therefore with immense pride that we launch this campaign as part of the ministry’s activities to mark and celebrate the very special occasion of Oman’s 50th National Day.”
