Published on : Thursday, March 15, 2018

OmanThe Sultanate of Oman have many important characteristics of a leading tourist destination with an exotic environment, undamaged coastlines, magnificent mountains and a wealth of historical attractions with number with UNESCO World Heritage sites, all of which will assist to turn the country into a truly exclusive location in the Middle East.

 
The National Program for Enhancing Economic Diversification (Tanfeedh) is executing steps targeted at developing Oman’s status as a go-to tourism destination. The Tanfeedh programme came into existence in early 2016 with the main aim of growing financial diversification and lessening the reliance of the Sultanate on the volatile oil and gas industry. It recognized five sectors as being crucial in gaining this aim – manufacturing, transportation and logistics, fisheries, mining and tourism. Oman’s Ministry of Tourism, via Tanfeedh programme and other efforts, has aimed an ambitious target of luring over 5 million international visitors to Oman on a yearly basis. It would be up from 3 million in 2016, as looking for a lift in the tourism sector’s contribution to the gross domestic product of Sultanate from 2.8% to 6%.

 
A huge number of significant projects targeted in attaining the ambitious goals of the country are in various stages of development across Oman. Oman Tourism Development Company SAOC (Omran) is focusing on unveiling of many new hotels in 2018, like the five-star W Hotel at present being constructed in Muscat. It will provide extra 1,000 rooms. Also, Omran is supervising the latest flagship master-development – the Madinat al Irfan Urban Centre – which is being considered as the “gateway to Oman”.
