It is my great pleasure to communicate with you through the GULFMET website which has been updated to cope with the progress that has been made since the establishment of GULFMET in June 2010.
On this occasion, I would like to thank my Colleague Mr. Saleh Al Rumaihi who successfully completed his term as president of the GULF Association for Metrology (GULFMET) ( Nov. 2016 – Nov. 2021).
During the term of Mr. Al-Rumaihi, the GULFMET witnessed rapid development in building its technical capabilities to demonstrate sound competency, leading to international recognition as an RMO within the meaning of CIPM MRA.
I will follow Mr. Al Rumaih's steps and continue to collaborate with BIPM, RMOs, NMIs, and the global metrology community to enhance the Metrology infrastructure in the GULFMET Member States and raise the people’s quality of life through measurement standards and technologies.
I hope the GULFMET website will facilitate communication among GULFMET member states and others who are interested in GULFMET activities.
