Oman’s delegation was headed by Dr. Laila Ahmed Al Najjar, Minister of Social Development.

Dr. Laila said that Oman devised policies, legislative systems and institutional frameworks to enhance the status of women, preserve their rights and provide them with a decent life.

In her speech, Dr. Laila underscored the attention accorded to women by leaders of GCC states, and their recognition of women’s role and contributions to the comprehensive national development in their respective countries.
