Oman Economic Forum (OEF08) / Forum

Oman Economic Forum (OEF08) Oman Economic Forum (OEF08) comes at a time when Oman is implementing an ambitious plan that aims at expanding and diversifying its economic base and reducing dependence on oil exports, by encouraging foreign investment in various areas through incentives and exemptions and the provision of proper public utility services.

To these ends, the plan aims at the development and modernization of the infrastructure, and the establishment of a base of heavy industries associated with oil and gas including petrochemicals and iron and steel industries. It also aims also to take advantage of the Sultanate’s tourism resources to make it a leading tourist destination in the region and thus to encourage domestic and foreign private investments in tourism projects and corresponding services.

All these ongoing developments, in addition to the large outlays that have been allocated to develop the oil sector and increase production capacity, as well as the new laws governing real estate ownership and direct foreign investment in the banking sector, have made the Sultanate of Oman the focus of attention and growing interest by investors and businessmen in the region.
