Leading international real estate consultancy Cluttons said that the transfer of most commercial cargo activities from Muscat port to Sohar, is critical to boosting tourism and future industrial development in Oman, Saudi Gazette reported. The Oman government’s deadline for receiving container, cargo, vehicle carriers and project materials vessels at Sultan Qaboos Port (SQP) in Muscat is set the day before yesterday (Aug. 31), after which they will be transferred to Sohar Industrial Port. The last four months of next year will be then allocated for clearing goods at the Muscat port warehouses and yards before it is converted into a tourism hub. Philip Paul, Head of Cluttons Oman, said: “We are already starting to see movement of some commercial activities down the coast to Sohar. This strategic move by the Oman Government is a positive step in making the best use of both ports, resulting in a win-win situation for Muscat and Sohar, and critical to future tourism and industrial development.”
