Abstract: Abstract Tourism is the largest global industry, and the tourism market is growing. According to the World Tourism Organization (WTO), the global tourism market will triple in size by 2020. Tourism benefits local economies substantially by increasing foreign exchange earnings, creating employment and investment opportunities, increasing government revenues, developing a country's image, and supporting all sectors of the economy as well as local communities. Tourism is of vital importance to the national economy of Oman. It is the Kingdom's largest export sector, its second largest private sector employer, and it's second highest producer of foreign exchange. The potentials to generate revenue and employment have been increasing in this Kingdom. I had tried to examine that is tourism industry is indeed a key component of economic growth and competitiveness of the Sultanate of Oman, By comparing Oman with the tourism world especially with its neighboring countries in middle East. By analyzing impact of tourism in Oman I have noticed that His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said has fulfilled his promise by introducing vision 2020.
