Work relentlessly for success of national plans

 Stresses government-private sector co-ordination

– High priority to HR development and education 

Lays greater emphasis on opportunities for youth

By Fahmy bin Khalid al Harthy – The Oman Daily Observer – November 1st 2011

HIS Majesty Sultan Qaboos presided over the opening of the 5th term of the Majlis Oman yesterday. His Majesty the Sultan said in a historic Royal address to the nation that Oman’s Shura experiment has been developed in a manner of progress meant to lay firm foundations and stable pillars that will ensure its natural growth, while at the same time meeting the requirements of each phase of national action and responding to the community’s needs.

His Majesty the Sultan noted that many notable achievements were made along the path of this blessed experience, the Sultanate’s Renaissance. In this respect His Majesty said, “We express our thanks for the efforts exerted in this regard and we are looking forward to a qualitative shift in national work which will be carried out by the Majlis Oman during the upcoming period in the light of the expanded powers given to it in legislative and auditing fields.”

Voicing this confidence, His Majesty the Sultan said, “Omanis are well-qualified to be an example and a model for others to follow in this age of rapid development and progress, and they are also capable of coping with the challenges of the modern age, and adopting every new enlightened idea, benefiting from sciences and new technology.

“We have always affirmed our continued attention to the development of human resources and we said that these resources take top priority in our plans and programmes.

“The forthcoming stage will witness bigger attention and greater care to provide more opportunities for the youth.”

Comment – One of HM best speeches in my mind! Majid Al Suleimany I Love This Man!

Graft will be rooted out: HM

MANAH Corruption will be rooted out from the administrative system and the youth will be given greater attention with job opportunities and a role in contributing to the development march, His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said told the Council of Oman at Hisn Al Shumoukh in the Wilayat of Manah in Al Dakhiliyah Governorate on Tuesday.

Delivering the Royal speech while opening the Council’s fifth term for 2011, His Majesty urged the Council to carry out its responsibilities efficiently with the expanded powers in the legislative and auditing fields.

“We are looking forward to a qualitative shift in national work, which will be carried out by the Council of Oman during the upcoming period in the light of the expanded powers given to it in the legislative and auditing fields. There is no doubt that the challenges are enormous, but we are quite confident that all members of the Council will play their role in leading the country to prosperity,” His Majesty said.

His Majesty said corruption will be rooted out from the administrative system.

“We instruct our government to take all necessary measures to prevent corruption and we direct all the audit authorities to fulfil their duties resolutely in this regard with the full force of the law,” His Majesty said.

His Majesty said the youth will be given greater attention. The government has created thousands of jobs in the state sector and was working with the private sector to increase employment opportunities.

His Majesty hoped the Shura Council will develop into a body, which will contribute to the decision-making process.

His Majesty urged the citizens to work tirelessly for a prosperous future.

The role of education in building a responsible and learned society was also stressed.

His Majesty invited the private sector to take greater role in developing human resources.

His Majesty assured all Omanis on freedom of expression but one should not force his opinion on others or suppress the rights of others to express their ideas freely.

The judicial and audit institutions will be upgraded with the aim of reinforcing the state institutions.

“Our support for the judiciary and its independence is a duty to which we have committed ourselves, and we recognise that it is imperative to respect its decisions without favoritism, as all are equal before the law.”

Ministers and heads of civil bodies lauded His Majesty’s speech.

HE Sheikh Mohammed Bin Sa’ayed Al Kalbani, Social Development Minister, said His Majesty stressed the importance of cooperation between public and private institutions and the citizens for the development of the country.

Her Excellency Rawiyah Bint Saud Al Busaidiah, Minister of Higher Education, said the speech asserts the strategic views to promote and update the universities.

HE Sheikh Khaled Bin Omar Bin Said Al Marhoun, Minister of Civil Services, said the speech encourages everyone to do his best in order to take part in the development march.

HE Dr Yahya Bin Mahfoudh Al Mantheri, Chairman of the State Council, expressed his thanks and appreciation for His Majesty for opening the Council of Oman. He said His Majesty’s speech will inspire the citizens to contribute to national development.

HE Khalid Bin Hilal Al Ma’awali, Chairman of the Shura Council, said the Shura Council and its members will do their best and proceed as per the message of the speech.

HE Khalil Bin Abdullah Al Khonji, Chairman of Oman Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OCCI), lauded the speech and assured the private sector’s support and cooperation to the government.

The session was attended by Their Highnesses, the chairmen of the State Council and Shura Council, ministers, advisers, commanders of the Sultan’s Armed Forces and Royal Oman Police, honourable members of the State Council and Shura Council, heads of diplomatic missions accredited to the Sultanate, sheikhs, dignitaries, editor-in-chiefs of Oman News Agency and local newspapers and representatives of the media from the sisterly and friendly countries.
