While emphasising Haya Water’s commitment to work towards Oman Vision 2040, an official said the company is proud to be one of the main pillars for preserving the environment and public health and making Oman greener.
Haya Water participated in the recent 9th Al Roya Economic Forum where Eng Sulieman bin Musallam al Rawahi, corporate affairs general manager, Haya Water, said Haya Water’s participation in the forum came as one of the partners in the Oman Vision 2040.
“The company’s role is to work alongside other institutions to achieve the lofty goals of the vision,” he said.
The conference was opened by Sayyid Fatik bin Fahr al Said, Special Envoy of His Majesty the Sultan, at the Grand Millennium Hotel.
This year’s theme was ‘The Road to Oman 2040’.
Responding to questions regarding the changes that the company is witnessing particularly after it was brought under the umbrella of Nama Group, Eng Rawahi said, “Based on the company’s board of directors and its executive management; and under the direct supervision of the acting CEO, the work is currently underway to harmonise the company’s strategies in line with the government’s directions and achieving the Oman Vision 2040, especially those related to reducing the government’s financial support and developing the national cadres.”
He added, “These strategies and plans, whether short or long-term, are linked to international standards and techniques in order to achieve best practices and improve work performance in line with the company’s aspirations to achieve distinguished results and to reach the break-even in the coming years, as well as to expand the wastewater services in various governorates.”
He also elaborated on the company’s corporate business plan which is currently being reviewed.
“We have been working on setting goals, measuring indicators and creating new investment opportunities. Our focus is to make financial profit that is expected to contribute in reducing the government’s financial support and achieving the desired goal of reaching a break-even.”
In response to the 2040 Vision’s direction to empower the private sector, Eng Rawahi noted that the company is working towards achieving this by encouraging the private sector establishments to invest and develop the sewage sector.
He informed that recently the company announced the first public-private-partnership project (PPP), which was regarding the construction of Al Misfa Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) and its facilities.
