Tourism ministry holds orientation for Tanfeedh groups
Tanfeedh is Oman’s national program working to enhance economic diversification. The country has been holding workshops and labs to develop initiatives to diversify, and one of the key focuses is tourism.
This stage of the Tanfeedh program comes after six-week lab sessions in which participants put together detailed analyses of 15 tourism initiatives, and the governance structure for Tanfeedh was then put into place. Ahmed Al Mahrizi, the minister of tourism, is leading a steering committee to oversee the execution process of all of these initiatives.
The steering committee will meet on a monthly basis about tourism initiatives and be in close contact with the Implementation and Follow-Up Unit, which is chaired by Khamis Al Jabri. Another key group in the process is the Ministry Delivery Unit, which will be broken into four groups to oversee the actual execution. The groups are composed of public and private sector executives.
