MEED Insights: Oman Projects Market 2018 - In-depth analysis and outlook of the project opportunities and planned investments


Oman is embarked on an investment drive that is creating a diversified, private-sector driven economy, and establishing the country as a major tourism destination and a strategic logistic hub for the region.

Oman’s transformation offers substantial project opportunities for investors, contractors and consultants in the construction, oil & gas, power, water, wastewater and transport & logistics sectors.

It is also creating exciting private sector investment opportunities in the tourism, healthcare, utilities and education sectors as it seeks to transfer the delivery of its public service to private sector operators.
