OPEX series of exhibitions are organised by a committee formed
by Public Establishment for Industrial Estates (PEIE), Public Authority
for Investment Promotion and Export Development (Ithraa), and Oman
Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OCCI). The ninth edition of
OPEX this year aspires at exploring new markets for the Omani
products in Kenya and its neighbouring markets, in addition to
strengthening bilateral relations with Kenya.
The exhibitors have nominated Kenya to be the next destination for
OPEX and they have expressed their enthusiasm to explore the African
market in general and the Kenyan market in particular. Kenya and its
neighbouring countries have promising and dynamic markets, which
would offer a variety of opportunities for the Omani industrialists in
It is worth mentioning that OPEX events seek to diversify the export
channels of Omani products, boost export relations and increase the
volume of exports by providing the Omani exporters with the
opportunity to introduce their products to new markets, and find
commercial agents for distributing products in the foreign markets.
