The Al Buraimi branch of the Oman Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OCCI), represented by the Heritage and Tourism Management Committee in the governorate, has hosted an agreement signing ceremony in order to launch a tourism program in Al Buraimi.

The agreements signed intend to implement projects and programs designed to positively impact the tourism economy in Al Buraimi Governorate.

According to the statement, the program underwent various stages, including analyzing the local and neighboring markets, studying the infrastructure, reviewing legislations and laws, and exploring facilitations and advantages contributing to maximizing the benefits of the tourism program.

Mr. Zaher bin Mohammed al Kaabi, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the OCCI in Al Buraimi, stated that “the package of projects marks a crucial effort in enhancing and developing the tourism sector in the governorate. This is particularly important given the current developments focusing on the development and investment in archaeological sites and the implementation of tourism development projects during the current year 2024.”

Through this initiative, the branch aims to strengthen the tourism sector’s position in the local economy by promoting and marketing the governorate correctly. The adopted package is the first of its kind in the governorate, part of a comprehensive strategy between private tourism sector institutions and relevant authorities, according to Mr. Al Kaabi.

Dr. Sultan bin Khamees al Yahyai, Head of the Tourism Committee at the Al Buraimi branch, mentioned that the initiative resulted from the collective efforts of all stakeholders, including tourism companies in the governorate and relevant entities.

Mr. Al Yahyai further highlighted the Chamber’s efforts to showcase various tourism assets in the governorate and organize a tourist program that aligns with the tourists’ requirements, encouraging investors to capitalize on available tourism investment opportunities.
