The Oman Road Safety Association (ORSA) recently held its Annual General Meeting at its Headquarters in Al Athaiba in the presence of more than 66% of its members along with representatives from the Social Societies and Community Clubs of the Ministry of Social Development.

The meeting was chaired by Dr. Wahid Al Kharusi, President & Chairman of ORSA, who welcomed the attendees and introduced the Chief Executive Officer of Association, Shaima Al Lawati, to present the Financial and Administration Report for the year 2013.

In 2013, the Association successfully reached out to more than 22 thousand Omanis and non-Omanis across 27 Wilayats in Oman and engaged more than 70 volunteers. The meeting included electing the new Board Members of the Association which now comprises of 12 members, chaired by Amor bin Nasser Al Matani. Hilal bin Yahya Al Mawali has been appointed as Cice Chairman, Moadh bin Ahmed Al Zadjali as Treasurer and Badria bint Abdul Rahman Al Siyabi as Secretary General.

Amor Al Matani, newly appointed Chairman of Oman Road Safety Association, said, “We have many challenges ahead of us. Road crashes are our biggest challenge in Oman causing death, disability or permanent injury. This significantly affects our communities, which in turn affects the social and economic development of Oman. Therefore, we at the Oman Road Safety Association aim to adopt plans, programmes and traffic regulations to reduce the rate of traffic crashes in the Sultanate in cooperation with the authorities and public and private institutions and civil society. I would like to thank all the former members of the Board of Directors, especially Dr. Wahid Al Kharusi, for their great work and efforts in establishing the Association and growing it to where it is today. I would also like to wish all the new Board Members every success in our efforts towards enhancing road safety in Oman.”
