Haitham bin Mohammed Al Ghassani, Assistant Director General for Tourism Events and Awareness at the Ministry of Tourism stressed the pioneering role played by the ministry in cooperation with various stakeholders, to enhance the Sultanate's position on the regional and international tourism map by highlighting different areas that reflect the local culture and heritage of Oman.

The new campaign complements the previous marketing campaigns carried out by the Ministry, which aims to promote the country’s tourist and natural attractions, placing it in an advantageous position for achieving the national tourism strategy and increasing tourism’s contribution to GDP to 10 per cent, by 2040.”
