Over 7,000 attend Musandam Carnival on first day

However, it is just the beginning of what promises to be an exciting lineup of activities and attractions coming to the centre. These efforts positively impact economic growth in the Governorate of Musandam through the tourism sector.”

Noura bint Mohammed al Dhahouriyah, Planning and Investment Director, at the Musandam Governor’s Office, says, "we believe the project will contribute to tourism growth and will bring an increased number of visitors while also creating numerous direct and indirect job opportunities for the local community."
