The Kanoo Group celebrates the 49th Oman National Day

The Kanoo Group celebrated the 49th Oman National Day held on 18th November 2019 at its head office in Azaiba, Muscat. It was attended by employees from Kanoo Shipping Muscat branch, as well as from the Accounts, HR, and Administration departments.

On the auspicious occasion, Oman Nationals and Expats alike came together for a banquet meal with a festive spirit, while exchanging pleasantries and National Day greetings to commemorate the country's independence. It was followed by a cake-cutting ceremony led by Mr Janaka Hewage (Shipping Manager), Mr Vijay Shankar (Accounts Manager) and Mr Mustafa Mohamed (HR & Administration Manager).

The entire office was adorned with miniature flags and tricolour decorations signifying the colours of the Oman flag (red, white and green) to mark the celebration. The 49th Oman National Day was the start of a two-day break, as 19th November was also declared a public holiday to mark the 79th birthday of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said.
