As component of its bigger initiative to help camel racing in the sultanate, Occidental Oman not too long ago attended the Haima Camel Race, which is the initial of 4 races organised by the Oman Camel Racing Federation, and sponsored by Occidental Oman.
Held beneath the auspices of H E Sheikh Madit bin Mohamed bin Abdullah al Yaqobi, Governor of Al Wusta, the occasion witnessed the attendance of H E Sheikh Said bin Saud al Ghufili, chairman of the Oman Camel Racing Federation, and Nasser Issa al Maskari, corporate social duty manager at Occidental Oman.
Over 300 individuals attended the race, exactly where 200 camels competed to win on the racetracks. After ten rounds, 4 winners had been declared. Occidental Oman awarded each and every of the winners with a pickup truck, in accordance with the sponsorship agreement previously signed in between Occidental Oman and the Oman Camel Racing Federation.
Occidental Oman will also award 24 winners of the 3 following sponsored races with pickup trucks. Future sponsored races consist of the Saham Camel Race in December 2018, the Adam Camel Race in December 2018 and the Ibri Camel Race in January 2019.
Occidental Oman has supported 13 camel races for the final 4 years, as the initiative engages with a sport historically tied to the culture of neighborhood communities. This sponsorship comes inside the framework of Occidental Oman’s extended-term commitment to strengthen its social ties with the communities situated in its concession locations and the wider Omani population, and it enhances the strategic partnerships and continuous collaboration with important stakeholders.
