Shatha Abdul Majeed Issa al Zadjali
This year has been exceptionally challenging for us all with the loss of a great leader and the global pandemic which have made us reevaluate our stance on every aspect of humanity and development. However, this year also brings us hope, promise and fulfilment for generations to come under the guidance of His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik by carrying on the legacy of the Late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos, may Allah grant his soul eternal peace, who put women at the forefront of socio-political and economic development of Oman and paved the path for women to lead in higher positions of government and other organisations. The recent appointments and Royal Decrees further solidify His Majesty Sultan Haitham’s vision to uphold the Late His Majesty Sultan Qaboos’ status granted to women. We must empower each other and those around us in building and shaping communities, moulding the minds of the leaders of tomorrow and contributing to the social and economic growth of the sultanate. We have witnessed incredible transformations in the role of women in Oman and look forward to many more advancements and accomplishments as the people of the country stand strong as a united front for a prosperous and bright future.
