This has been made possible only because of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said and the Government’s vision and policies which encourages and provides a conducive environment for businesses and deserves a special mention. These have been LuLu Group’s main drivers. The faith that has been bestowed upon us has translated into growth and has been a motivation for us to strive and do better. The induction of young Omani’s into our workforce has been instrumental in strengthening our presence in Oman, and we will ensure that there is adequate focus in this area,” said Yusuff Ali M.A. “The inauguration of the Al Bandar Complex at Mawelah branch is a matter of great pride for us as we join hands in a collaborative manner with Oman’s Ministry of Defense,” he added.
Located in Muscat near Mua’skar Al Murtafa’h and a privileged location near Al Sahwa Tower Roundabout, the complex is designed to cater to the employees of the military and their families as well as the people from the catchment areas of Mawaleh, Al Khod, Rusayl, Mabelah Jifnain & Bid Bid.
