For Maqbool Hameed Al Saleh, 2013 has been a challenging year for his construction business as regional contractors looked to compete for projects in Oman.

However, Oman Holdings International has thrived in the intense competitive atmosphere.

OHI is currently working on a $64.9mn (OMR25mn) Military Technical College, a $15.6mn (OMR6mn) extension to Barka Desalination Plant, Muscat City Centre Food Court and Cinema, Qurum City Centre Cinema, and the British School Muscat.

Starting from scratch, Al Saleh has built a firm that employs about 4,500 people with business interests ranging from contracting, telecommunications, hospitality, real estate and IT solutions.
