Hence, the learning sector became a primary focus of the Oman Vision 2040. We, at Bank Nizwa, understand the importance of imparting and gaining knowledge, and the need for remote learning facilities that have arisen due to the pandemic. . In line with the same, we hope that the provision of laptops for the budding future of Oman will complement the Sultanate’s efforts in driving right to education for all in the true sense.”
