Oman benefits from a strategic location, particularly for the movement of goods and people by sea and air. As a result, transport and logistics has been identified in Vision 2040 – the government’s national development strategy – as one of five key areas in the sultanate’s efforts to diversify away from dependence on hydrocarbons. Transport infrastructure is also critical to the success of other sectors and economic efficiency as a whole, and is therefore a major source of public funding. With an upgraded airport terminal opening in Muscat in 2018 and new multi-lane highways crossing the country, Oman has invested heavily in the sector in recent years. This chapter will contain interviews with Abdulrahman Al Hatmi, CEO, Oman Global Logistics Group; and Sheikh Aimen Al Hosni, CEO, Oman Airports.
