Microsoft has recently celebrated the opening of its office in Muscat, Oman. The office was officially opened by His Excellency Maqbool bin Ali bin Sultan, the Omani Minister of Commerce & Industry.

His Excellency welcomed the move. “As information technology continues to play a pivotal role in the Omani economy, we welcome Microsoft’s presence here. Oman has the capabilities as well as the expertise in sustaining IT growth and development in the new digital economy and we believe that international investment is an indication of this empowerment,” he said.

The Muscat office, which is Microsoft’s seventh regional office in the Gulf and Eastern Mediterranean region, will allow for better service of customers and partners in Oman, according to Abdullatif Al Mulla, country manager for Microsoft UAE, Oman and Yemen. The office will also allow the company to offer better support, and to work more closely with academic organisations and the general community.

“Oman is embarking on key projects and a long term relationship with Microsoft,” said Emre Berkin, vice president of Microsoft MENA. “The office in Muscat is our seventh in the Gulf and Eastern Mediterranean region and goes to show the commitment Microsoft retains for the Arab countries in specific and the Middle East region in general.”
