Global Accessibility

Oman’s strategic geographic location, situated outside the Strait of Hormuz, is a pivot point for shipments across the Indian Ocean. The ports of Sohar, Salalah and Duqm provide fast trade routes to many of the world’s leading markets.

With the best deep-water ports in the Indian Ocean, US$25bn government investment in air, maritime, rail and road transport infrastructure, and connectivity to free zones and industrial estates, Oman offers a distinct competitive advantage to companies looking to establish a base in the region and penetrate fast-growing GCC, African and Asian markets.
