From The Report: Oman 2020
View in Online Reader

Blessed with scenic wadis (valleys), natural caves, islands, beaches and mountain ranges, and known for its ancient culture and hospitality, Oman has a lot to offer tourists. Its expanding economy and reputation for stability also draws visitors for meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions from the region and beyond. The sector is central to government efforts to diversify the economy, and authorities have worked in recent years to streamline regulations and fast track infrastructure developments to facilitate visitors, such as building a new international airport and convention centre in Muscat. A steady stream of private investment in the hospitality sector is also contributing to improved services.
