Remarking on the Summit's Al Musannah projects, His Highness Sayyid Faisal Al Said, COO of BOMU
and the man behind Muscat Youth Summit, said: "The one-day projects we organised were very simple.
In her remarks, Alya al Hosni from BOMU
said, AoHistorically, countries have used events like the Olympic Games and the World Cup to push business, inward investment and tourism agendas.
Running until December 31, the Bomu Youth Survey will hopefully assist policy-makers, community leaders and the Omani public of the importance, relevance and value of youth participation - not simply because it's fundamental to the principle of inclusiveness within any society, but also because, quite simply, our youth have a critical and important role to play in the articulation, development and management of the current and future affairs of the Sultanate.
Surveys like this by Bomu bring decision-oriented information into the public policy-making process.
As His Highness Sayyid Faisal Al Said, COO, BOMU
puts it: "Developing a city is a process, not a moment.
Stressing that the best hope for the future is to nurture the talents of youth, the BOMU
COO said, "We need to create an environment in schools, colleges and offices where people are encouraged to grow creatively.
We hope the Summit will equip the 180 attendees with the skills required to thrive in today's knowledge-based economy," remarked the BOMU
is all set to stage the second Muscat Youth Summit from November 1 to 4 at Al Nahda Resort and Spa.
Inside Stories' is a series of knowledge sharing seminars designed by BOMU
to discuss and find ways of improving national competitiveness, boost domestic levels of entrepreneurship and research, and enhance cross-border mobility for Oman's business community.
COO suggests that the social and environmental challenges confronting cities have been exacerbated by the recent global economic recession which have led to greater demands on public services and tighter government finances.
management recognises that as in other countries, the demand for public services in Oman is growing faster than the economy as a whole especially for health and education and this trend is expected to continue as Oman competes in the global economy.
In this regard, BOMU
is working with partners in the public and private sector to help differentiate Oman from other places and hence facilitate the promotion of the Sultanatea€™s place product offer.
