Oman's Business Potential

The Sultanate of Oman offers excellent scope for aspiring business entities in the fields of infrastructure development, tourism and industrialisation. Massive infrastructure projects are under way in the country including expansion and development of existing Muscat and Salalah international airports, construction of several green-field airports in different regions and expansion of existing port facilities at Muscat, Salalah and Sohar. Construction of a new dry dock at Duqm on Muscat-Salalah route is progressing. The Sohar Port, the country’s only industrial port also offers enormous scope for establishing new industrial concerns.

The Government is also planning a major expansion of the country’s flagship Sohar Refinery, construction of several power projects and introduction of a rail network to facilitate easy movement of cargo through surface transportation.

The Sultanate is one of the few countries in the region with diversified natural beauty and enormous scope for developing the tourism potential to farther levels. The country has a rare combination of pristine beaches, historical sites, hill stations, plains and coral reefs. Projects worth millions of Rials are under way throughout the length and breadth of the country. Oman is fast emerging one of the favourite destinations of holiday makers from around the world.

Oman’s reputation as a peaceful country and the political and financial stability that it has achieved over four decades under the visionary leadership of His Majesty make it an attractive investment destination for foreign investors.
