Use of an extract of the ancient perfume frankincense — the hardened resin from trees of the Boswellia genus — Muscat: The Ministry of Heritage and Tourism on Monday signed a usufruct agreement to develop the Frankincense Trees Site in Wadi Dawkah, which is registered in UNESCO’s World Heritage List

The agreement was signed by Eng Ibrahim bin Said al Kharousi, Under-Secretary of the Ministry of Heritage and Tourism for Heritage and Sayyid Khalid bin Hamad al Busaidy, Chairman of the luxury perfume company Amouage Company.

The company will develop the site that includes 1,230 perennial frankincense trees, in addition to more than 8,000 trees planted along the valley in an area of 5 square kilometres.

The ministry aims through this agreement to benefit from the production of these trees economically, which in turn will generate direct and indirect job opportunities. It also aims to develop the local community by implementing value-added projects.
As per the usufruct agreement, the company will construct and operate an eco-friendly visitor centre that includes an educational and tourist corner and in accordance with the best international practices and the guidelines of UNESCO.
