Oman Daily Observer
is an English-language daily broadsheet published from Muscat
, the capital of the Sultanate of Oman
, and it comes under the Ministry of Information. Dr Abdullah Nasser bin Khalifa al-Harrasi is the current Minister of Information. 
Known for its objective reporting, the newspaper does not take sides in its editorials and reportage.
Despite overwhelming focus on the rights and welfare of the Omani population, of which a considerable percentage is the youth, the paper does not shed its responsibility towards the well-being of the large number of expatriate population.
History and profile
Established on November 15, 1981, Oman Daily Observer, as it is officially called, is a widely respected broadsheet and one of the old newspapers from the GCC's second largest country. It is the only English-language newspaper to be published on all seven days in Oman as its two competitors have no editions during weekends.
The 'Observer' focuses on local, national, regional and international news covering current affairs, business, and sports.
It also pays special attention to Oman’s economic development, highlighting the country’s natural, historical and cultural wealth. In an era where even conventional newspapers resort to sensationalism and activism for readership and social media follower-ship, The Observer believes in the fact that the media's primary role is to report news as it happens, without being judgmental.
Abdullah Salim al Shueili is Editor-in-Chief of the Observer since 2013.
The editorial policy is to present the fact as it is without making an attempt to interpret to the tastes and needs of readers.
Oman Daily Observer is the country's only national paper for its role in highlighting the country's all-round development, at the same time not shying away from its responsibility of bringing out the grievances and concerns of the society, including that of various communities that co-exist peacefully in Oman.
Oman Observer's digital wing, www.omanobserver.om, is one of the countries leading English news websites. They have a very strong presence on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
