Pankaj K. Khimji : Operational Challenges to Businesses
A Way Forward
(Oxford Business Group, The Report - Oman 2010)
"The mall syndrome is bound to bite into smaller Omani retailers. At the same time entrepreneurial ventures and small businesses will play an important role in job creation and Omanisation, so small-scale retail operations have a chance to lead as well. The government, too, needs to lend more support and encouragement to smaller businesses, which it is starting to do. Some have criticized Omanisation as a detriment to revenue streams. No doubt it presents operational challenges to businesses, but it is the only way forward."
