In January, HH Sayyid Theyazin bin Haitham Al Said, Minister of Culture, Sports, and Youth, announced the approval of the Council of Ministers to establish sports and cultural clubs in various Wilayats, including Al Amerat Club in Muscat governorate. This decision reflects HM Sultan Haitham bin Tarik’s dedication to promoting sports and culture, recognizing their vital role in nurturing youth talents and providing platforms for cultural and sports activities. Al Amerat’s inclusion marked a historic milestone for the Wilayat, one of the most populous in Muscat governorate alongside Seeb, Bausher, Qurayyat, and Muttrah. With a focus on youth empowerment, aligned with Oman Vision 2040 under His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik’s leadership, the youth of Al Amerat can anticipate an enriching schedule of sporting activities in the years to come. And as the Chairman of the club, I intend to bring the Oman 2040 Vision to its fructification. CEO Today Middle East Awards 2024 - OMAN - - 13 -
