Ithraa (The Public Authority for Investment Promotion and Export Development), Oman's inward investment and export development agency, is hosting a three-day Invest in Oman Roadshow in Paris this week to strengthen trade and investment relationships.
Representatives from some of Oman’s most noteworthy and esteemed business organizations, such as SEZAD, Oman Air, Oman Aquaculture Development Company and Oman Rail, will create the senior delegation.
“In addition to strengthening existing Oman-Franco trade and investment ties, we have identified strong prospects in tourism, logistics, food and beverage manufacturing and fisheries that we intend to home in on,” Ithraa Director General of Investment Promotion Sayyid Faisal Al Said said.
“We are delighted to be working in partnership with so many important trade and investment stakeholders,” Al Said said. We are in a marvelous position to boost awareness of Oman's businesses and highlight the wealth of opportunities in key sectors in the sultanate, he said.
Oman officials will rely on infrastructural developments including Madinat Al Irfan, Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre, Muscat International Airport, Al Mouj Muscat, Duqm Port and Oman Rail to lure in new developers to the region.
“We have found on recent trade missions that European investors are intrigued by the business story Oman has to tell,” Al Said said. “We have the stability, infrastructure, opportunities, talent and logistics connections French businesses are looking for. We are most definitely in an interesting and strong position.”
