The Business Year has followed the Omani economy for a decade, and this year we focused on the Sultanate’s diversification plan and its sustainability agenda. While the country is less hydrocarbons rich than its GCC neighbors, infrastructure and renewable energy development, as well as green hydrogen, could be driving forces for growth in the years to come. Both the public and private sectors closely follow the tenets of Vision 2040, a wide-ranging blueprint for growth the kind of which has become ubiquitous across the region.
