Description of Project:
This project involved the review of ports strategy throughout Oman and future needs, the effectiveness of port management, best practice in other countries and benchmarking of Oman's ports, past and planned expenditure on port development, value-added resulting from port operations and the contribution to Oman's economy, and recommendations to improve all of the above areas.
Many of Oman's ports are dedicated fisheries harbours, and Poseidon provided a fisheries economist to work with a multi-disciplinary team, to provide all the fisheries-related inputs to the project.
