The Sultanate of Oman: An Arabian Utopia – Beautiful, unique, magical
With the advent of 1970 came to the dawn of a modern renaissance in Oman, with the beginning of the prosperous 50 years of his Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said may Allah rest his soul. With the dawn of 2020 came the new leadership and guidance of His Majesty Sultan Haitham Bin Tarik may Allah protect him with a vision of a renewed renaissance and we at A’trs International are proud to support and be part of this new promising era of Oman’s long and glorious history.
The attraction for twenty first century businesses to Oman’s unique geographical location, serving the Gulf States, India, Asia and Africa, is catching on. To quote a passage from history:
“Oman has always been known to travellers sailing between Europe and India or Persia. But it was its coast that was known. Greeks and Romans charted it, medieval merchants traded on it.”
