Oman looks to expand tourist markets

Oman's Ministrty of Tourism has created a network of 'Market Business Representatives' that serve as focal points in countries from where the bulk of tourists visiting Oman originate, Gulf News has reported. These MBRs are currently located in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Russia, the GCC states, India and Australia. While the European and GCC states accounted for the vast majority of the estimated two million visitors to Oman last year, Russia, India and Australia are considered promising source markets.
