TBY talks to Khalid Al Nabhani, Co-Founder & CEO of Sabeen Group.
How has the group evolved since its inception?

Sabeen Group started with a media section, which developed into different sectors and later we gathered into a group of companies to develop ideas to bring to the market. We are targeting a niche and non-competitive sector that Oman leads in and aligns Vision 2040 in different sectors such as tourism and AI. It compiles different sectors that are in alignment with our vision. As for this past year, we are aiming to expand Lunar Cinema. Along with our friends in Saudi Arabia and Bahrain we have unique and different concepts which include private platinum screens that allow people to enjoy their movies whenever they want to. We are also into the manufacturing as well. We are looking into scaling a fish and meat manufacturing business, which Oman needs. Right now, Oman imports its fish from outside the country. We are working with the government to localize this manufacturing and use their source of materials that we manage, to make the food industry more secure.

Which sectors do you see having most potential?

If we talk about which one has more growth potential, we are focusing mostly in the tourism sector, although this comes with a lot of challenges. We talk about a tourism that includes the entertainment side. We are focusing on digitalizing a lot of services, and we plan to launch an Oman insurance company. It will be a fully individualized and digitalized insurance service and will help people to get insurance services from their mobile easily. Beside insurance services and digitalization, we are going to add fintech services through our own insurance. For us, we are working on a small platform that can change in the shape of the market. This digital platform could allow us to see the real estate market in different ways than before. Besides that, we are doing an accounting project with the government through digitization. We are also working on a new museum. It is being built by a French company and will be the best museum in Oman.
