Welcome to Newsbriefsoman
This website, in its previous incarnation, used to host an archive of Oman news summaries compiled from February 2001 to support such research by presenting business, political and development news about the Sultanate. With the availability of new software solutions, I have changed the ethos of the website so that I comment on issues which I select from articles published primarily in the Omani English-language press: the Oman Observer and the Times of Oman, and also the regional press, notably Gulf News and Khaleej Times, whilst maintaining listings of headlines, Royal Decrees, and Omani public figures.
I have also transferred most of the feature articles which used to appear on the old website. Please use the search facility to trace the item in which you might be interested.
Much business and economic information, which appears in the in-country newspapers, is not otherwise easily accessible. Both the Times of Oman and the Oman Observer now have searchable daily archives but they are limited in scope.
Sadly, since I upgraded the software to give readable urls, links from individual items to the main menu give error messages. In which case, click on NewsBriefsOman in the main menu, which will return you to the main page, and you will be able to reach other areas of the website from there.
Should you require more detail, or you would like more recent information, or if you can't find what you're looking for, please contact me to enquire about tariffs and to request a deeper, broader search of resources.
