Infra Oman 2011 will put the spotlight on the multimillion-Omani rials infrastructure projects that are currently under construction or will be implemented soon as part of the government’s comprehensive strategy to diversify the economy and develop all industry sectors. In particular, the international exhibition will focus, among others, on the sultanate’s tourism projects, power and water projects, health infrastructure projects, industrial projects, oil & gas projects, transport infrastructure projects, telecommunications projects, and residential projects.
To cater to the massive requirements of these projects, Infra Oman 2011 will also showcase all types of building materials, heavy equipment, construction supplies, engineering and consultancy services, architectural services, and other products and services that are necessary for the successful implementation of any infrastructure project. The international exhibition will also have special sections focusing on ‘affordable housing development’ and airport build and supply’ and ‘heavy equipment’.
