Tourism in Oman is structured to promote economic diversification, preserve the nation’s cultural integrity and protect the environment.
The industry is being developed as a sustainable socio-economic sector in a manner that reflects the Sultanate’s cultural heritage and ethos of traditional hospitality.
With a rising 3% contribution to Oman’s GDP, the industry has solid growth potential and now plays an increasingly important role in attracting foreign investment and generating local employment opportunities.
With a view to achieve a 5.9% contribution to the GDP by 2040, ASAAS is working to realize the sector’s potential valuation of USD 20 billion, as noted by Oxford Business Group (2015).
