In collaboration with PDO, TRA implements Last Mile Connectivity (LMC) initiative to create 200 job opportunities

As per the Governments directives to support the SMEs and provide job opportunities to the Omanis’ youth, the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Petroleum development Oman (PDO) to train 200 job seekers for two years, which will guide the trainees through to set up businesses in the telecommunication sector.

The implementation of this initiative is aiming to Omanise jobs in the last mile connectivity services; which are now occupied by untrained non-Omanis which contributes to unemployment levels among Omanis. Second, the number of companies performing services has created unhealthy competition by lowering prices beyond a sustainable level for well-established businesses to survive. Third, there has been very little regulation in the LMC sector, which has affected the quality of services provided.

In this regard, PDO Managing Director Raoul Restucci, said: “We are determined to sustain our efforts to create employment and business opportunities for jobseekers in a variety of economic sectors including telecommunications. “By joining forces with trusted partners, such as the TRA, we aim not only to create job opportunities for young Omanis, but also to equip them with the tools and skill sets which will empower them to start their own businesses.”, He added.
