Muscat – The Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Investment Promotion (MoCIIP) will launch Tejarah Talks on Wednesday at the Civil Aviation Authority Training Centre in Al Hail North.

Tackling topics directly relevant to business, industry and investment in Oman, economic diversification and job creation, besides pressing global issues, Tejarah Talks will explore post-COVID-19 company culture, the evolving world of manufacturing, cracking export markets, green transition, creative industries, and marketing in the new data-led world. The first session of the series will focus on the topic ‘Sustainability: A Nice-to-have or a Need-to-have?’ on February 23.
