Muscat is the capital city of the Sultanate of Oman, a Middle East maritime trading centre with 2000 years of maritime history and a stunningly diverse range of landscape that includes:
- more than 3,000 km of pristine coastline on the Arabian Gulf, Arabian Sea and Sea of Oman.
- dramatic wadis (valleys) cut into rugged mountain terrain.
- marine, desert and mountainous nature reserves.
- majestic deserts, riverbed oases and sand dunes reaching up to 250 metres in some areas.
Oman is the ideal location to host international maritime events owing to its unique combination of historical maritime tradition and the latest technological growth and development. With maritime trade and the hydrocarbon sector supporting annual economic growth of 2.5%, it offers an attractive investment climate for prospective investors scouting for innovation. Moreover, it is a young nation (40% of the population is under age 25) in a pro-business reformation process, aspiring to increase trade and investment by promoting innovative solutions.
