A nation’s blessing and gateway to the world

The Sultanate is Oman is witnessing remarkable changes, every single day, making an impact on people’s lives. Doors are always open to welcome for a good change for the nation and its subjects. The country has been interacting with different changes worldwide, hence it gets the best of it, so it develops accordingly. Consequently, every corner of the country has experienced a significant change, which promotes the lifestyle of Omanis and lifts their standard of living. As well, it contributes to the thriving nation-building process.


The daily needs and demands of a modern country and its people are increasing of course, so is the Sultanate of Oman getting distinctively and rapidly developing in most walks of life. Citizens and residents can easily access crucial infrastructure facilities and services and are benefitted alike. Tourists and travellers are too getting the advantage of the changes taking place in the country. Everybody is admiring and highly speaking about the way the country is portraying its image and reputation globally.


The Sultanate is Oman has proven to the world that its development march has been proceeding in the right direction. As the country is continuing to develop infrastructure, improve quality of human capital, best utilisation of its work force, everyday new projects and achievements are being seen. The development march, wrapped with all accomplishments made in various spheres, has marvelously impressed the world.


We commemorate here one of the key national milestones that have been marked in January around four years ago, Duqm Airport. It is located at the new beating heart of Oman and will be a new thriving gateway to the country. The new airport compliments the series of other local airports, which are planned in different parts of the country. This airport will definitely help nurturing the Special Economic Zone at Duqm, in particular and Al Wusta Governorate in general. It is really a commendable achievement indeed!


Thanks to the government for planning such great projects and appreciation extended to the bodies concerned for making these plans come true and bringing these airports to operation. Of course, Duqm Airport has played a significant role in promoting the economic zone globally as a distinct and perfect tourism and investment destination. Likewise, it facilitated bringing new foreign investments to the country. With the more projects and business opportunities to come up in Duqm, the new airport will serve as as a gateway to welcome and attract more local and international developments and businesses to that area. Therefore, all these potential opportunities will support Omanisation by bringing more job openings for nationals.


Outstanding achievements, like this airport, reflect the government’s long-term promising plans and strategies. As His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik said: “We are confident that you all perceive the volume of challenges that we have been through, that we have tackled with tact and patience, and then, with the Almighty’s divine support, proceeded with the implementation of our social and economic plans and programmes, guided by Oman Vision 2040. Our economic and fiscal performance has improved, and we started to accomplish for you and with you the march of growth and prosperity.”


Furthermore, Duqm Airport will contribute in boosting economic diversification and tourism in that part of the country by attracting more visitors and tourists. Duqm has a rich cultural heritage, natural beauty and geographical variety of landmarks. The link between the sea and the desert further strengthens its image as an ideal destination for relaxation and tourism-related investments.


The pathway of development journey is spreading covering every corner of the country. It is now taking to a new route making a stop in the middle of the country. That place will be a new distinguished world-class hub for investment and tourism in the country and one of its kind in the region for its unique characteristics and advantages.
