MUSCAT — The Traffic Safety Expo 2013 will be held from November 11 to 14 at Oman International Exhibition Centre under auspices of Dr Ali bin Masoud al Sunaidy, Minister of Commerce and Industry.
The Traffic Safety Expo 2013 was unveiled yesterday during a press conference at the Traffic Safety Institute by Brigadier Mohammed bin Awadh al Rawas, Director-General of Traffic at the Royal Oman Police.
Al Rawas said that the efforts in traffic accidents reduction succeeded as accidents declined by 19 per cent according to a recent data issued by the NCSI.
He also said that about 50 per cent of Omani drivers are committed to following traffic rules which prove that all awareness campaigns carried out by both government and private parties and volunteering groups achieved their aims.
It is considered a key platform featuring not only the latest trends and most innovative solutions in traffic safety but also it highlights the effective safety models and best practices implemented.
It provides exhibitors an exclusive opportunity to meet senior government officials, police representatives, fire and rescue safety officers, policy makers, industry executives, engineers, fleet managers, safety professionals and general public.
More than 26 government establishments and 64 private firms are participating in the expo in addition to civil associations and traffic safety committees from all wilayats.
“Because of the success of the last edition of the expo which attracted more than 60,000 visitors, we expect this year to attract more than this number as we invited every one interested in traffic safety to be a part of the event as long as he has a message to spread. I would like also to emphasis on the ROP efforts to reduce traffic accidents within the National Strategy for Traffic Accidents Reduction for the years 2011- 2020.
