Muscat, The Organising Committee of Omani

Products Exhibition (OPEX) met recently to discuss the latest

preparation updates for the upcoming OPEX 2018 which will take place

during the period from October 29th to November 1st, 2018 in Kenya.

The meeting was held in the presence of Ayman bin Abdullah al-

Hasani, Chairman of OPEX Organising Committee, and a number of

committee members, at the headquarters of the Public Establishment

for Industrial Estates (PEIE) in the Knowledge Oasis Muscat.

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

these markets.

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.
