The Zawawi family: Big business in Oman

One of just a handful of merchant families who dominate business in Oman, the Zawawis have benefited from their proximity to Sultan Qaboos Bin Said Al-Said, and remain influential in politics. The family has also extended its reach globally, with investments in the US, the UK and beyond.

This report highlights the risks and opportunities associated with the family, and considers the way in which politics and business combine. It reveals, for example, how one family member’s political role in Oman’s economic development policy is reflected in his – and his foreign partners’ – participation in lucrative multi-million dollar industrial and infrastructure projects called for by the same policy.

Dissecting the Zawawis’ huge business portfolio – looking not just at the assets, but at the way they intertwine – the report gives valuable insights to anyone interested in the socio-economic structure of Oman, and the Gulf ways of doing business.
