Oman lies on the edge of the Arabian Peninsula, and is the oldest independent state in the Arab World. Throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, Oman was a major trading power throughout the Indian Ocean and along the coast of East Africa. In recent decades, Oman has seen significant improvements in development, and today boasts a high income economy largely based in the oil industry and a growing tourism sector. Oman and the United States first signed a Treaty of Friendship in 1833, and have remained close strategic partners, with a bilateral free trade agreement signed in 2009.
Please join the World Affairs Council - Washington, DC as Her Excellency Dr. Hunaina Sultan Ahmed Al Mughairy, Ambassador of Oman, hosts a Council Embassy Series event, and will discuss the Oman-U.S. Free Trade Agreement and the current climate for investment in Oman.
