Evolution not revolution in Haitham’s first 100 days as Omani leader
Some clarity is emerging as to how Sultan Haitham Bin Tariq Al-Said will seek to shape Oman as he approaches his 100th day in office since the death on 10 January of Sultan Qaboos Bin Said Al-Said.

Clearly meant as the outline of a comprehensive strategic vision, the speech was all the more revealing because it was drafted and written by the sultan himself.
