About the Future Car Conference 2016
Oman is looking to step up its domestic auto production with a joint venture with the Iranian carmakers, and is set to commence production within a year. This will not only open the market potential of manufacturing, but also after sales and spare parts. Oman’s automotive sector provides great investment opportunities.
