At the 2014 celebration of Omani Women's Day, celebrated annually since 2009, Zahra Al Ajmia, president of the Muscat Business Women's Centre (MBWC), said during a speech on the topic of women in business: "Women certainly got special attention from His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said, because of their effective role in the society, which is proven by their achievements in all fields."
For example, the MBWC, which is affiliated with the Oman Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OCCI), aims to support and improve the situation of female business workers, with a particular focus on the small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) segment.
