Why Oman

From soaring mountain peaks to vast deserts and over 3,000km of beautiful coastline.

Oman is a country known for its stunning natural beauty. The country has also been blessed with rich natural resources and has historically utilised technology and innovation to take full advantage of these reserves.

A country steeped in tradition and culture, the Sultanate has its roots in seafaring, trading, and fishing; traditions that remain just as popular today as they were hundreds of years ago. During the last half-century, under the wise leadership of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said, Oman has also generated rapid social and economic growth across a vast number of other industries, together with a steady rise in population numbers.

In recent years, the country has put great effort into economic diversification. It is these efforts, coupled with its geographical location, stable political climate, and excellent infrastructure, that have contributed towards the Sultanate’s continued growth and prosperity.
