Economic diversification are watchwords in the sultanate, which has a multi-pronged strategy in place to boost its economy through capitalising on its tourism potential, drumming investment into its industrial sector and developing its infrastructure to keep pace with demand.

The sultanate’s largest urban development project is gearing up for its next milestones – the opening this year of a 455-seat auditorium at the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre (OCEC) and a five-star hotel – following the recent inauguration of the four-star Crowne Plaza Hotel within the project.

Leading engineers from the UK teamed up to give Oman an ingenious piece of art that sym-bolises both the use of modern technology and traditional knowledge.
