Oman continues to develop into a regional powerhouse for the shipping and transhipment of dry bulk goods such as iron ore. To this end a new port is being constructed at Duqm and new cargo terminals at Salalah and Sohar. The new Duqm port will also boast a new oil refinery. Further port developments include the announcement that all cargo operations were moved from the Muscat port of Sultan Qaboos to Sohar as of the end of 2014. All of this is aided by Oman's position on the Arabian Sea, outside the Gulf, enabling it to offer shorter shipping lines than ports within the congested body of water. On the macroeconomic side, growth in the Omani ports sector will be supported by expanding GDP and rising private consumption.
