Muscat: The government has made great strides in publishing the children’s encyclopedia, which will be launched at the upcoming Muscat Book Fair, according to

HH Sayyid Theyazin bin Haitham al Said, Minister of Culture, Sports and Youth, on Monday.

Speaking at the Together We Progress Forum's session on culture, sports, and youth, he said that work is in progress to prepare an innovative industries map.

HH Sayyid Theyazin said that despite the financial challenges facing Oman, "We have reevaluated the priorities and working on some amendments."

As for the new integrated sports city in Musannah, HH Sayyid Theyazin said, "We have hired a British company with a high international reputation that has provided us with some models, which will be revealed after we make a decision. The location of the sports city will be in Mussanah, near one of the resorts."

His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik, in October 2023, instructed government authorities to begin procedures for establishing an integrated Sports City project to attract and host regional and global tournaments and competitions.

Bausher Sports Complex

The restoration of the Sultan Qaboos Bawshar Sports Complex is an essential issue and we are working on plans.

Privatization of clubs

Work is underway to study the privatization of clubs, and the plan is to start with four clubs with the help of major companies. They are in the process of completing a study.

The project will start by setting some standards to improve their performance and focus on one activity to give them more attention and care.

There are plans to start an adventure sports center and a museum of contemporary art.
