“We are truly privileged to lend our expertise and resources in support of our clients. This deal gave us the opportunity to work across teams globally to propose the most optimal and innovative financing solutions for Oman Shipping Company,” said Hussain bin Ghalib Al Yafai, CEO of Standard Chartered Oman.
