The article presents an interview with Sheikh Mohammad Al Zubair, advisor for economic planning to Oman's Sultan Qaboos on his efforts to develop the economic conditions and tourism in Oman. He said, "We will shortly begin a serious campaign to promote Oman as an international destination. Our project, Barr Al Jissah is both for HM the Sultan and for us, a pilot-project. The government took shares in it, which is an indication of how committed our leaders are to developing tourism in the sultanate." Oman already has a very good infrastructure to attract tourists, with luxury hotels, outstanding physical attractions, first class restaurants, an international airport and the like.
