The ruler of Oman is named Sultan Qaboos Bin Said and he has been in
power since July 23, 1970. He was born on November 18, 1940 which makes him 74
years old today. He is currently trying to preserve Oman's traditional character,
which means he is trying to keep the country's original styles and traditions instead
of being new and modern. Some history of his leadership is that on August 9th he
made a speech to his country showing his visions. This day he declared the country a
new name and flag. This is the name the Country is called today. The people of
Oman really like this leaders way of life and his ideas.
