Muscat,

His Majesty Sultan Haitham Bin Tarik attaches a special importance to the issue of employment of Omani youth.

His Majesty has often reaffirmed that youth are the inexhaustible wealth of nations and that youth employment tops national priorities.

In pursuance of the efforts exerted by the departments concerned to provide jobs in public and private establishments and to promote self-employment, it has been decided to create more than 32,000 jobs for Omanis during 2021, among them 12,000 jobs in the government’s civil and military establishments in accordance with the actual needs of different departments.

Also, within the context of the Royal directives of His Majesty the Sultan and as part of efforts made by government departments to find all means to support employment, various employment initiatives have been launched, reflecting the government’s keenness to employ job seekers and workers who were laid off in the backdrop of the current global economic circumstances that resulted in the shrinkage of the labour market worldwide, compounded by the negative impacts of coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.—ONA
