Welcome to the JSRS December 2022 Newsletter

Browse through the monthly highlights

The Year 2022 was a phenomenal journey for BGI and my thanks and appreciation go to each of you for the belief and support extended to the BGI Team.
In 2022 we continued to work on strengthening our client relations by rising to meet, and in some case exceed, the client’s expectations. In doing so, we have managed to hit many prominent milestones along the way. We at BGI are passionate about driving In-Country Value (ICV) in Oman while supporting the Government of Oman’s Vision 2040 goals in enabling a digital economy.
In our December edition of the JSRS monthly Newsletter we look back on the past events, achievements and the journey so far. Scroll down to read this year’s highlights.
Come 2023, we are excited to enhance our services delivery model to our stakeholders and intend to expand our experience by reaching out to the global stage and play some significant roles in taking Oman to the world. As always, businessgateways is standing by to support you in every way that we can and wish you and your organization, the best of 2023.

Past Event Highlights

Meet-JSRS-ملتقى 9 Events | May to August 2022

Over the past couple of years, due to the Covid Pandemic, we at businessgateways were fully supporting the JSRS community using online platforms. However, considering the current back-to-business environment and since our office in Muscat was open, we were keen to ‘meet and greet’ our Omani JSRS Suppliers and interact regarding JSRS.
With ‘Meet-JSRS-ملتقى’, the BGI-JSRS Team held special in-person support sessions at various cities in Oman and the UAE so existing JSRS Certified Suppliers & Suppliers wanting to be JSRS Certified in those regions, can conveniently meet and interact with us on the concerns and clarifications regarding JSRS and better manage their JSRS Certification compliance requirements.
We held 9 Events across Oman & UAE: Ibri, Dubai, Sohar, Muscat, Nizwa, Haima, Salalah and Al-buraimi. These Events were an immense success with over 400+ Companies joining us for informative sessions packed with Presentations on ICV, SME and Investment Opportunities by key stakeholders along with an introduction to the Joint Supplier Registration System (JSRS).
