GLOREI Joins Origin Oman

"At the Global Omani Development and Investment Company (GLOREI) we place great importance on being part of the local business community," says Eng. Mohammed Al Ghassani GLOREI CEO. "With this in mind we've signed up to become a member of the Origin Oman portal. The portal is a great initiative to help bring the local business community together and to strengthen it. GLOREI is delighted to be a member of it."

The Origin Oman portal is part of the Origin Oman Campaign, a government initiative to promote local products and services. Commenting on the Origin Oman Campaign Eng. Al Ghassani goes on to say: "I've been impressed with the Origin Oman Campaign in general - it's had a range of initiatives that appeal across the community - such as workshops to encourage and develop local businesses and the 150 Kilometre Meal at which all the food was grown locally and prepared by a team of local chefs."

"At GLOREI we were particularly interested in the Go Green Guide produced by Origin Oman. Environmental stewardship is very important to us; responsibility to the environment is at the heart of GLOREI's company values. Origin Oman encourages us all to use local suppliers and by doing so we can really help the environment as the goods have fewer kilometres to travel and therefore have a reduced carbon footprint - there's less transport related pollution. What's more, by buying local we can help the local economy, encourage the creation of local jobs and we can be sure of the quality we're getting. This aspect of the Origin Oman Campaign, that buying local means buying quality, is vitally important. We need to get the message out that locally produced goods and locally offered services are of an excellent standard and match, if not surpass, the quality of their international counterparts."

Rafid Mukadam, GM of Infocomm, the company behind the Origin Oman portal added: "The portal, originoman.om, is one of the first places companies wanting to do business in the sultanate look, so those registered on it are at an immediate advantage - I'm talking about service providers as well as manufacturers here. The portal gives its members the chance to advertise not only their products and services but also their job vacancies and career opportunities. The portal has a great role to play in strengthening the local business community; by presenting a united front through originoman.om local businesses can get better recognition regionally and internationally. On top of that, there's no charge for registering and members can tap into various initiatives run by the Campaign free of charge."
