Commenting on the publication, Mohammed Bin Suleiman Al Taie, Founder & Chairman of Oman Tribune and Editor-in-Chief of Al Watan said: “The book is the salute of the people to their great leader, the architect of Oman’s Renaissance and its growth.”

“This is the greeting of a generation that has enjoyed the benefits of modern education, access to the latest technology, hospitals and community centres where the services of experts and specialists are available.

“This is the salutation of a generation which was born to enjoy the prosperity and affluence of life with ample availability of water, electricity, quality roads, appropriate employment and a legal system which ensures their peace and security. This book is their salute, our salute and the salute of everybody who, under His Majesty’s wise leadership, played their part in ushering in the Renaissance,” he added.
