Built at a cost of RO3.72mn, the state of the art centre will be a regional hub for the development of virtual reality projects and multimedia content for local and international markets.

''The centre plans to train as many as 120 Omani youths annually to help them establish their own enterprises specialising in producing reality simulation programmes,'' said Said Ahmed al Hadhrami, ITA, media specialist, information and awareness division.
