General Automotive Company (GAC), the official distributors of Mitsubishi Vehicles in Oman, on the occasion of the Omani Women’s day organized a special celebration for its female staff at the Mitsubishi Showroom in Azaiba.
In accordance with the Royal directives of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said, the 17th of October has been set aside every year to recognise and honour the valuable contributions made by all women in Oman towards the social and economic development of the country. In commemoration of this day the management of GAC organized a special fun-filled program for its female staff members on Sunday, October 19.
Commenting on the day’s celebrations, Mark Tomlinson, the Group General Manager of Zubair Automotive Group said, “The importance of this day directly reflects His Majesty’s and our own beliefs, of the critical role Omani women play in today’s landscape and the valuable contribution made to the country’s future progress, both in business and in society as a whole. Omani Women’s Day is therefore a time to honour all women in the Sultanate.”
At GAC, a large number of very significant roles are held by women, each of them helping the company and the Mitsubishi brand reach ever higher rungs of success year on year. Furthermore, in line with the group’s values, GAC endeavors to ensure that both men and women are equally recognised, and that both genders enjoy the same opportunity to progress to fulfil their own aspirations. In fact, only recently, GAC appointed its first ever female Branch Manager. Backed by her phenomenal results and the success of her team, the management hopes to see even more women in higher positions in the company’s future.
“Whilst members of our female staff work in different sections of our business, in various locations across the country, it is clear to see that the women in our company are definitely skilled, empowered and confident, and it personally gives me great pride to be associated with such a talented and well informed group,” added Mark.
The fun-filled day included various activities including quizzes and games with instant prizes as well as a raffle draw. Furthermore, in a show of appreciation and in order to commemorate their valuable contribution to the successful operation of the company, all female staff were presented with a special gift. The event concluded with a buffet lunch specially prepared for the occasion.
