Knowing the integrity of an organisation, institution or entity to invoke trust and confidence is an integral part of human endeavour. This should also replicate in the overseas decent work programme by Sierra Leone Ministry of Labour and Social Security ( MLSS ) headed by Hon. Minister Alpha Osman Timbo ( Esq) and development partner SOS Labour Ghana Limited, overseas decent work placement company currently operating in Sierra Leone headed by Rev. Dr. Princess A. K. Ocansey ( CEO) , founding member of Nekotech, also Principal Legal Migration and Decent Work Consultant to Sierra Leone Government.
Here is the narrative
The four -decade – long story of The Sultan Center (TSC) began in 1981 when founded by Jamil Sultan and established the first self – service retail store in Kuwait ; it was based in Shuwaikh and took on a Home Center format.
Jamil Sultan is regarded as a visionary and pioneer in the business community of Kuwait.
In addition, to founding The Sultan Center (TSC) , he propelled Agility Logistics , a state owned warehouse company into a worldwide logistics firm , and he was Vice Chairman of National Real Estate Company ( NREC) in Kuwait, a leading real estate investment and development firm present in the Middle East and Africa.
The business ventured into the food retail industry with the opening of Salmiya store in 1986 that is still serving customers with care as The Sultan Center’s (TSC) flagship store.
In Sultanate of Oman, where it first expanded outside Kuwait , it operates 7 retail stores. And owns 15 stores in Jordan and 3 in Bahrain ( Lebanon) . In February 2020, TSC celebrated the launch of its new flagship store in Kuwait during an opening ceremony held at the store’s new location in Al Kout Mall.
