Why Oman?

  • Zones provide a large number of opportunities in ports, utilities, gas pipelines and other supporting infrastructure
  • Driven by a rising population the government aims to spend 12% of annual expenditures on development projects
  • Unique strategic location with four special economic zones which have become clusters of industrial and commercial activity: Duqm, Salalah, Suhar and Al Mazunah
