Yusuffali M. A. also praised the pro-development and liberalised policies which have attracted substantial investments to Oman. “In Oman, our plans are to bring more and more world class shopping outlets to the expats of the country and give customers the feel of the world-class shopping experience at close proximity rather than making them drive long distances,” he added.
