Abdullah Salim Abdullah Al Salmi, commented on the decision to select the Taipei Exchange as expert SME consultants: “We are delighted to have engaged the Taipei Exchange. They have an excellent track record of developing services and products that benefit SMEs, which is demonstrated by the high growth of successful SMEs in their market. They have developed a wide range of solutions and approaches to meet the needs of many different types of SMEs. This ability to provide many varied solutions rather than just a single approach is something we believe is particularly important in the context of Oman. We have agreed a work-plan with them, and look forward to seeing the results of their work later this year.”
