Imam Ahmed's great interest in trrade can be attributed to his being one of leading merchants in Muscat prior to and post of his term of office.
     During his reign, trade prospered greatly and Muscat and its port had become one of the most renowned trade cities in the Arab Peninsula and the Gulf. The prosperity could be attributed to Imam Ahmed's policy in dealing with domestic and foreign merchants.
