According to a press release, the meeting was presided over by Sayyid Khalifa bin al Mirdas bin Ahmed al Busaidi, Governor of Musandam.
This phase follows the economic strategy formulation stage in March.

The aim was to come up with the best strategy for spatial planning for the governorate in line with the economic strategy discussed in March.
