‘The sul­tanate’s cel­e­bra­tion of Omani Women’s Day on Oc­to­ber 17 ev­ery year is a tes­ta­ment to the at­ten­tion and hon­our that women have en­joyed since the

Mus­cat - “I ex­tend my sin­cere con­grat­u­la­tions to Omani women on the oc­ca­sion of Omani Women’s Day cel­e­brated on Oc­to­ber 17 each year.

Omani women who re­sponded to the call of the Re­nais­sance are work­ing hard to build the coun­try.

I con­grat­u­late ev­ery Omani woman who lives on this land or abroad, who has con­trib­uted or will con­trib­ute to the progress of Oman.

We ex­tend our con­grat­u­la­tions also to all our fe­male com­pan­ions from all the coun­tries of the world who en­joy a de­cent life in this dear coun­try.

There is no doubt that ded­i­cat­ing this day ev­ery year to the Omani woman high­lights her achieve­ments, shed­ding light on her re­mark­able con­tri­bu­tions, spread­ing aware­ness of her prom­i­nent role and her high po­si­tion and en­hanc­ing her as­pi­ra­tions for a bright fu­ture for this dear na­tion. This came as a re­sult of the gen­er­ous sup­port and pa­tron­age of the Late His Majesty Sul­tan Qa­boos bin Said.

Omani women, over the past 50 years of the Blessed Re­nais­sance, have re­ceived am­ple at­ten­tion, care and hon­our. They have got the ed­u­ca­tion, train­ing and em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties to ac­tively par­tic­i­pate in the de­vel­op­ment process of Oman to keep the sul­tanate in line with other coun­tries of the world.

Com­ple­ment­ing this ap­proach, His Majesty Sul­tan Haitham bin Tarik is keen to es­tab­lish the prin­ci­ple of part­ner­ship and so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity be­tween women and men in Omani so­ci­ety.

His Majesty the Sul­tan ap­pointed a num­ber of women to se­nior po­si­tions in the gov­ern­ment in recog­ni­tion of their po­ten­tial and abil­ity to per­form the tasks as­signed to them to re­alise Oman’s fu­ture vi­sion with sin­cer­ity and de­vo­tion.

We ex­tend our thanks and pride in all work­ers from dif­fer­ent sec­tors fight­ing the pan­demic and the med­i­cal staff who are at the fore­front.

In con­clu­sion, I would like to thank ev­ery Omani woman and I ask God to pre­serve our dear home­land, Oman, and to har­monise its peo­ple to the good, progress and glory un­der the lead­er­ship of His Majesty Sul­tan Haitham bin Tarik.”

They have ex­celled in their role in rep­re­sent­ing Oman in re­gional and in­ter­na­tional fo­rums.’

The state­ment added that the Coun­cil of Min­is­ters con­grat­u­lates women on the oc­ca­sion, ex­press­ing its deep ap­pre­ci­a­tion to all for their es­sen­tial and im­por­tant role.

The Coun­cil of Min­is­ters wished Omani women fur­ther success in car­ry­ing out their re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and con­tin­u­ing their con­tri­bu­tions to Oman.
