OPEX 2019 to be held in Rwanda


The ceremony was held under the auspices of H E Dr Ali bin Masoud bin Ali al Sunaidy, Minister of Commerce and Industry, at Crowne Plaza Muscat. Speaking at the event, Ayman bin Abdullah al Hasani, chairman of OPEX Organising Committee, revealed that the next destination of OPEX will be the capital city of Rwanda, Kigali.

“OPEX upcoming destination has been selected following discussions with the Omani industrialists and business owners who stressed their aspiration to expand the markets of Omani products in East African countries,” Hasani elaborated.

He added, “The committee has been organising OPEX events since December 2012 as these exhibitions present significant platforms to promote our national products and explore new markets for the locally manufactured products.

“So far, nine exhibitions were organised in seven countries that comprise Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the UAE, Iran, Algeria, Ethiopia and Kenya. Over 150 participants representing government bodies, companies and factories, commercial and service businesses, SMEs and artisans have taken part in these exhibitions over the past eight years.”

Hasani added, “In fact, more than 100 contracts and deals were inked at these exhibitions.”

The ceremony then highlighted a brief on Rwanda, which is bordered by Uganda to the north, Tanzania to the east, Burundi to the south and the Democratic Republic of Congo to the west.

The event also honoured more than 80 Omani companies and a number of SMEs that participated in OPEX 2018.
