Agriculture & Fisheries

Oman 2020 - Agriculture & Fisheries

Given that fishing and agriculture have historically formed central parts of Oman’s economy and society, it is not surprising that the country has the highest rate of food self-sufficiency in the GCC. Targeted investments to further enhance food security have seen the sector advance on all fronts – but most notably in terms of technology – as the government seeks ways to sustain a growing population and foster a more diverse economy. Support for innovative state-backed dairy, red meat and poultry projects continue to boost production and provide investment opportunities, while niche segments such as organic farming need more robust regulation. This chapter contains an interview with Saleh Mohammed Al Shanfari, CEO, Oman Food Investment Holding Company.
