In Collaboration with 


It is with regret that we have to announce the event, Opportunities in Oman, which was scheduled to take place on 5th February 2020, has been postponed. The postponement is due to the sad demise of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said al Said, the Sultan of Oman and the period of mourning in Oman. A new date will be announced soon.

Location: Arab British Chamber of Commerce 43 Upper Grosvenor Street, London W1K 2NJ

The Arab British Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with the Embassy of The Sultanate of Oman is hosting this unique event to explore the potential for increasing the levels of trade and investment between the two countries.

Ties between the UK and Oman are historic, enduring and valued by both sides. Their friendship has continued unbroken since a formal agreement was reached in 1800 and its 220th anniversary will be marked in 2020.

Bilateral trade between Oman and the UK is on the increase, soaring 90% to around $3.713 billion (RO1.4 billion) in 2018, compared to 2016, according to official figures; an increase that highlights the strength of relations between the two countries.

Opportunities in Oman takes place as the sultanate steps up its diversification drive which is creating new opportunities across key sectors such as education, tourism, healthcare, metals & minerals, fisheries, logistics, food and water.

Opportunities in Oman will bring together a panel of experts to offer insights into these issues and will seek to identify opportunities for partnership and collaboration with Oman.
