Recently, The ministry of tourism, Oman conducted a multi-city roadshow in Mumbai. The event was attended by the officials of the Ministry of Tourism (MOT), Oman, representatives from Oman air and 140 Indian trade partners and travel agents.

Through this roadshow, the Oman tourism board informed the guests about the diverse products and experiences that Oman has to offer.

Additionally, Oman is also focussing on enhancing its MICE sector. A case in point is the recent launch of the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre in Muscat, that has led to an increase in business tourism of the Sultanate.

Maitha Saif Al Mahrouqi, Undersecretary, MOT said, “The Indian traveller is in a rapid state of evolution and is looking to be engaged in many ways. We recognise and acknowledge the demand we see from India and other potential markets. Hence, as part of the Sultanate’s National Tourism Strategy 2040, the Ministry of Tourism seeks to introduce the sector’s latest developments, services, projects and facilities of the tourism industry, such as opening the new passenger terminal at Muscat International Airport and launching the electronic visa. It also aims to promote the Sultanate’s unique cultural heritage, the pristine environment and terrain diversification that will allow tourists to experience the destination.”
