The Omani Renaissance
On the 23rd of July 1970 H.M. Sultan Qabus bin Said succeeded to the throne of Oman and inaugurated a new era that brought Oman from the ashes of history. H.M Sultan Qabus managed to restore confidence, dignity and self-respect for all Omanis. His government began 5 years development plans providing services for all the people all over Oman and built a civil service that can manage the task.
Extensive infrastructures were built, such as roads, hospitals, schools, universities, ports and airports, as well as a telecommunications system connecting Oman’s cities, towns and villages with the rest of the world.
The Omani monarch is set to continue leading his nation to ever broader horizons.
