Oman Vision 2040: The Future of Investment

Oman Vision 2040 is a wide-ranging blueprint for economic and social development over the next two decades.

The government has devised Vision 2040 to place Oman alongside the developed nations of the world. Alongside this, the Tenth Five-Year Development Plan (2021-2025) represents the executive plan for paving the way to implement the Vision and is aimed at overcoming various challenges to ensure high economic growth rates. This will be done by achieving fiscal balance, increasing non-oil revenues, setting financial and investment incentives for the governorates to stimulate trade and diversification, enhancing human capita, and creating job opportunities.

This event aims to present Vision 2040 to the international community, alongside the strategic financial investments happening in the different growth sectors of the Omani economy. It will be a superb opportunity for government bodies to further explain, elaborate on, and discuss with top-level executives the interactions between different public and private key entities.

It will also allow the business environment to raise the challenges they expect to encounter in the future and understand how those challenges will be tackled by the strategic roadmap outlined by the government. Each speaker on the panel will address one sector of the economy to provide a broader outlook of the policies and programs that are being followed to attain shared goals. Some crucial topics that the speakers will be discussing are capital preservation and high-risk adjusted investment returns, market liberalization, the sizeable opportunities from public and private partnerships, and commitments toward the development of human capital. It will showcase the dedication toward the required transition from a non-oil-based market and the sustainable landscape that is awakening.
