PACP is an established cultural landmark of the blessed renaissance, considering its major role in the development across the country, thus becoming a main engine in the socioeconomic development in Oman, by ensuring the best service to consumers, in addition to the awareness of the consumer rights, fighting monopoly in the markets, and protecting the markets from manipulation, in addition to its efforts to create mechanisms to solve the problems.
Since its inception, PACP achieved several achievements, including the stimulation of the consumer’s role in the local, regional and international economic movement, making it a roadmap for the Arab world in consumer protection, and established its path on the global “consumer protection map” as a leading organization.
PACP achievements are the visible result of the continuous efforts for protecting the consumers, and for fulfilling its jurisdictions as best as possible.
On this occasion H. E. Dr. Said Khamis Al Ka’abi, PACP Chairman, said: “The 23rd of July is a shining memory in the life of our beloved country, it is a historic day in the life of the people and the nation. The achievements made over the past forty seven years are remarkable, and a source of pride for every citizen. Thanks to the wise leadership of His Majesty the Sultan Oman gained a significant status amongst all the countries of the world. During the blessed renaissance the development spread throughout Oman, in all aspects, and PACP is amongst the results of this glorious era.
Dr. Al Ka’abi stressed that Oman, represented by PACP, has gone a long way in protecting the consumers, despite the short timeframe since its inception, and continues its efforts to establish the concepts of consumer protection in Oman, and extends the protection to all. PACP managed to be an active partner in the development process, and to prove the ability of the Omani people to accomplish when the target is clear, as demonstrated by the real feeling of belonging, the drive to pay back some of the benefits. PACP achievements demonstrate the continuous efforts by its entire people to perform their role in protecting the consumers by monitoring the markets, seizing violations, receiving complaints and solve it and preserve the consumer rights. Thanks to the collective efforts of its employees PACP gained a strong platform based on trust and transparency, thus the responsibility is multiplied requiring more efforts and achievements through sustainable operations and successes.
