Oman, throughout its very long history, has contributed to the building of human civilization, a contribution that is universally acknowledged and renowned.
The strategic location of this country, the lively spirit which took
Omanis to all
corners of the world - sailing the seas, facing the dangers, exploring new horizons, and reaching out to other peoples with their traditions and cultures - all these factors had a lasting effect on the civilization that was built by our forefathers and succeeding generations. This civilization is now a living heritage embodying and reflecting the saga of our history, and the deep rooted richness of the Omani experience.His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said- Icon of Peace- Pride of Oman
