In 2015 and 2016 we did a com­pre­hen­sive re­search study of the Omani mar­ket and went to the US to com­pare prices. We found out that we of­fer a bet­ter pric­ing strat­egy. We be­came the sixth ac­cred­ited reg­is­trar as we were com­pet­ing with the other five reg­is­trars.

“We re­solved is­sues in the mar­ket based on pric­ing. As we look at the Euro­pean mar­kets, the prices are fixed there. This was a high­light that we gave to the mar­ket and to the peo­ple.”

He said the com­pany will of­fer some in­cen­tives for the users, who are will­ing to reg­is­ter through the com­pany.
