Following a highly successful debut in 2015, SME Beyond Borders - Oman returned to Muscat and delivered a clear strategy for the nation’s SMEs to follow.
The core debate focused on how SMEs can meet the challenging demands of the government’s General Budget - and the best ways to build capacity, upgrade personnel skills and aspire to Best Practice.
SME Beyond Borders - Oman, organized by CPI and sponsored by NBAD, was a one-day event bringing together 13 key personalities each well-known for their powerful, expert views on Enterprise development.
Recommendations emerging from SME Beyond Borders included:
SME Beyond Borders - Oman will now be taking the conclusions of the event forward as part of core feature content in SME Advisor magazine, and as key discussion points in the forthcoming SME Beyond Borders - Egypt event, taking place at the Ritz Carlton, Cairo, on September 26th.
Country CEO, NBAD, Mohammed Ba Omar, commented that: “Today’s event was especially significant because conclusions on SME strategy were reached by citing actual economic and commercial data, much of which had previously not been seen in the public domain. The speakers were all personally involved in driving SME performance. SME Beyond Borders has once again set the benchmark for fostering innovative solutions for enterprises.”
