Advertising Media & Trade Promotion

Advertising is most commonly done through newspapers.  There are two daily English language newspapers in which companies can advertise: the Oman Daily Observer and the Times of Oman, both of which publish business supplements and are read predominantly by expatriates. The two Arabic dailies, Oman and Al Watan, reach a broader Omani audience and are also published seven days a week.  Two independent business monthly magazines, Business Today and Oman Economic Review, began publication in 1998.  Advertising is also possible on Omani television and radio and on limited highway signs.  There are no private radio or television stations.  It is possible to advertise on the Internet and cell phones via Omantel.
