Ithraa sets up website to promote Oman’s pro-business atmosphere
The ‘Invest in Oman’ portal was launched on Monday at the Implementation Support and Follow-Up Unit (ISFU) in Muscat by Public Authority for Investment Promotion & Export Development - Ithraa.
The portal aims to focus on the pro-business atmosphere in Oman and provide local companies and entrepreneurs the opportunity to connect with investors worldwide.
The portal focuses on international investors, industry trends, workforce, intellectual capital and tax policies in the sultanate.
Azzan al Busiadi, CEO of Ithraa, said, “The Invest in Oman portal has been developed due to an increasing demand for investment in large and start-up Omani businesses. The portal provides a platform to present world-class investment opportunities featuring high-growth companies in the sultanate on a global scale.”
Eng Ibrahim al Mamari, CEO of Invest Services Centre, said, “This initiative is a great success in the development of Oman’s business environment. The ‘Invest in Oman’ and ‘Invest Easy’ platforms will attract further investments to support the ambitious economic development plan of the sultanate. By launching this platform, business opportunities in Oman will be easily realised by local and international investors.”
Given its role in attracting investment to the sultanate as well as promoting Oman’s non-oil exports, Ithraa works with a range of public and private sector organisations.
And with regards to enhancing the domestic business environment, Ithraa co-ordinates with ISFU. The Invest in Oman portal is of particular interest to ISFU, an initiative it intends to support and monitor.
