(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Omran and the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre (OCEC) organised a networking meeting for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) on Tuesday at the InterContinental Muscat.

The event was aimed at encouraging SMEs to forge business partnerships with local suppliers.

By interacting with authorities and industrialists, they can come up with great results. I am glad that the event has got a good response.''
