Oman

Brief about Oman

Oil and gas fuel the economy, and revenues from petroleum products have enabled Oman to witness a remarkable development over the past four decades. Realising that Oman’s high dependence hydrocarbon fuels, and that oil and gas will run out soon, the Omani government in recent years has been focusing on the development of industry, trade and tourism thus leading to an increase in ISO certification in Oman.

The Sultanate of Oman saw decelerating economic growth in 2016, as a result of lower investment in the oil sector and generally lower public spending. Consequently, Oman continues to resort to its reserves and to borrowing, hoping that oil price increases in the international markets along with its demand. It also hopes that pumping enough money into non-oil industries will boost its economy; a reason for private companies to ger ISO certification in Oman.

Other booming industries

Infrastructure

Oman’s infrastructure, especially its road network, has expanded greatly in recent decades. Oman now has 12,402 kilometres of paved roads and 17,009 kilometres of graded roads. A new national railway, connecting the UAE border with the Port of Sohar, Muscat, the new port of Duqm, and the southern city of Salalah, will be part of a wider railway network in the GCC. The Omani government decided to extend the railway towards the south, eventually connecting southern Oman with the Etihad Rail network in the United Arab Emirates and further afield. Oman is also spending billions of dollars to improve its airport infrastructure as a part of efforts to boost its economy; the tourism sector in particular.

With all this infrastructural effort, the Sultanate is trying to bring to in international companies to its shores, and this has increased the demand for ISO certification services in Oman. International organisations investing here today have made it a mandate to procure ISO consultant services in Oman, to streamline their processes for maximum returns and efficiency.

tourism

Oman has great potential when it comes to tourism. With long coastlines, dramatic mountain scenery and many historic sites, including four UNESCO heritage sites, the tourism sector is a focal point of diversification. The Ministry of Tourism confirms that it is able to generate 37000 jobs every year owing only to the hospitality sector. This is mainly due to multiple hotels and restaurants popping up all over the country. The demand for ISO 22000 in Oman and HACCP in Oman is higher than ever. Employers in this industry are expected to train their staff on various food safety standards; ISO certification in Oman a key to this requirement.

agriculture & fisheries

A sustained development of agriculture and herding is a prerequisite for continued life in the desert and oasis settlements. There are experiments with organic farming leading to an increase in ISO certification in Oman. Most of the crafts are also based on agricultural resources, in particular from date palm trees, such as leaves, fronds, bark, branches and fibre. This has to lead to increased exports of organic produce thereby making ISO audit in Oman a prerequisite. Fisheries form a relatively important income-generating sector. Some 15,000 fishermen are involved in this sector, which provides a source of living to about 100,000 people. HACCP in Oman and ISO 22000 in Oman has seen a sharp rise to ensure safety of raw fish being traded locally and internationally.
