Driving Economic Development
Port of Salalah exemplifies the strategic vision of the Government of Oman to reduce dependence on hydrocarbons and achieve a diversified economic base to secure the nation's long-term development.
We see our facilities primarily as a trade enabler which makes it faster and less costly to move products in and out of the country.
An unwavering emphasis on recruitment of local Omanis and procurement of local goods and services has helped fuelled the growth of the local economy. The port is counted as the largest private-government employer in the governorate of Dhofar, southern Oman.
The rapidly growing East Africa and India markets will further enhance our role in port centric logistics as a secure and efficient way to serve both markets from one hub location while still being directly connected to the developed markets of the US, Europe, and Asia.
