4 Jan 2022 By ONA

Manah – His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik held a meeting with sheikhs of the governorates of Dakhliyah and Al Wusta at Hisn A’Shumookh Castle in Manah on Tuesday.

This was announced in a statement issued by the Diwan of Royal Court reading as follows:

‘Within the context of the Royal attention of His Majesty the Sultan to confer with Omani people in all governorates, study their needs for basic projects and development services, converse with them face-to-face about all that benefits this noble country and its loyal people and overcome all the difficulties that might come in the way of the country’s march of comprehensive growth, HM Sultan Haitham bin Tarik today held a meeting with sheikhs of Dakhliyah and Al Wusta at Hisn A’Shumookh Castle in the wilayat of Manah.

‘At the outset of the meeting, HM the Sultan gave thanks and praise to the Almighty Allah for the prosperity He has bestowed on Oman. HM the Sultan prayed to the Almighty to perpetuate these bounties so that the blessed Omani renaissance attains wider horizons of progress.

‘Then, HM the Sultan spoke about a number of developmental, economic and social projects that respond to the aspirations of the country and its citizens. He gave directives for collaborative action between the government and citizens to help realise these aspirations.

‘The desired action stems from the wise Royal vision for the governorates to play their roles and fulfil their responsibilities in terms of the provisions of the system (statute) attached to Royal Decree No 101/2020 promulgating the Governorates and Municipal Affairs System (law), so that they can deliver their missions in a manner that conforms with the requirements of the current period and aligns with Oman Vision 2040.

‘HM the Sultan also issued directives to increase the sums accorded to the Governorates Development Programme from RO10mn to RO20mn for each governorate during the current Five-Year Plan, with effect from 2022.

‘The Royal directives require the respective governors to present annual executive plans to the departments concerned about ways to expend the sums.

‘HM the Sultan also tasked the governors with the responsibility of following up on the execution of social and service projects in their respective governorates.

‘Then, HM the Sultan issued directives to provide appropriate financial support to Omani Women’s Associations and to public and private rehabilitation centres catering to people with disabilities, in all governorates of the sultanate, so that these organisations can better perform the significant role in serving society and developing its potentials.

‘May the Almighty Allah protect HM the Sultan and assist him with power to pursue the path of bounties. May He eternalise Oman’s riches and endow the country and its people with further peace and security.’
