Quotes

...with the winners at the Awards ceremony in London last year," said Alison Cryer, Director of Oman Ministry of Tourism, MBR office UK & Ireland. "This year, we are excited to welcome them back to be considered for the People's Choice for Responsible Tourism Award, and to hear them share the stories of their businesses once again."
Professor Harold Goodwin, Chair of the Awards Judging Panel, was keen to impress being on the Longlist is no guarantee of an Award: "Our Judges have yet to see the organisations in the Longlist, which have been drawn from public nomination, and there is still much work to be done before the Panel meets to decide the winners in September. Not all of those listed here will make the cut In the next month we'll be asking them to put forward the best possible case for why they feel they can be credible and inspirational winners this year."
"It's the jewels," her friend replies. "The jewels shimmer and that makes the abaya look extra special."
...But Oman has proven that peaceful coexistence is possible. It's an important example to set, says Leonard. "Imagine the peace and prosperity that could be possible for our world if, instead of competing with one another and holding one another in suspicion, we became good neighbours, partners and friends" notes Leonard
