“With Visa’s support, we can craft more innovative solutions and bring more value to our users. Our aim is to support Oman in its journey towards becoming a digital economy and partnering with key players like Visa is the key to making this aim a reality,” Mr. Al-Rawahi added.

Mr. Manish Gautam, Visa’s Country Head for Oman, stated that, “We are delighted to partner with GFT to support the growth of digital payments and drive financial inclusion in Oman. We are particularly keen to provide end-to-end, innovative technology solutions to our partners such as GFT, enabling them to join us in our mission to give more consumers and businesses in Oman access to the digital economy by bringing them the latest in digital payment solutions.”
