On the agenda of the opening sitting, H.E. Ahmed Al Nadabi said that the first thing we do after the formation of the bureau and its committees, we will review the state budget for the year 2020.
He confirmed that the most prominent files and topics that require special attention from the government and the society include: the national economy, diversification of sources of income, effects of the economic crisis and job seekers. He pointed out that they are very important and sensitive national issues that require special care from the Council, the Government and the society, despite the fact that the economic situation affected by the low oil prices is global.
Then, the members of the Shura Council went to the common halls of the Oman of Council to elect the heads of the committees and their deputies for half term.
