''BankDhofar's support of the 14th Industrialists' Conference is part of our continuous endeavour to develop more efficient channels for exports and implement policies conducive to fostering an environment of cooperation.

The event also gives us the opportunity to see how best we can improve our products and create better efficiencies to support the industrial sector,'' commented Kamal Hassan al Murazza, deputy general manager of Wholesale Banking .

The two-day event was also held with the participation of the GCC ministers of industry and the Oman Ministry of Commerce and Industry.
