After detailed review of the value proposition, the strategy of the Salalah Free Zone is to focus on export-oriented activities resulting from three areas of competitive advantages:

  • Attractive Market Access and Reach – Proximity and accessibility to raw materials in terms of mineral and non-mineral natural resources, catering to a regional demand currently satisfied through imports, and relocating activities that are currently serviced through the global trade flows.
  • Competitive Conversion Costs – In terms of labor wages, utilities costs and savings on duties as a result of the Free Trade Agreement with the US.
  • Strong and Global Connectivity – Primarily through a world class transshipment port.

Three clusters emerged: Chemical and Material Processing, Manufacturing and Assembly, Logistics and Distribution with the certainty of significantly reducing their total landed costs.
