An inaugural conference for contractors to be held in Oman towards the year-end will aim to streamline construction activities and re-energise the industry.
The Oman Society of Contractors (OSC) Conference 2015 will be held under the theme: ‘Oman Contractors Sector now and in 2020’ at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in capital Muscat, from December 16 to 17. An exhibition will be held concurrently with the event.

The conference will focus on topics such as the contractor sector now and in 2020, the impact of the oil price on the sector, skilled workforce and Omanisation challenges, the impact of late payment and variation procedures and prevailing regulations on the sector.
