The Oman Business Road Show was put together to promote trade and investment opportunities between the Sultanate of Oman and the United States of America. His Excellency Dr. Ali bin Masoud Al Sunaidy, Oman's Minister of Commerce and Industry, had plans to lead a high-level trade and investment mission to the United States from October 23rd to October 31st. The Road Show delegation consists of over 40 business and government leaders, including Oman's Ambassador to the United States, Her Excellency Hunaina Al-Mughairy and the U.S. Ambassador to the Sultanate of Oman, the Honorable Greta C. Holtz.
The delegation visited Houston, Texas and Chicago, Illinois before stopping in New York City for the final leg of the tour. High priority sectors targeted were transportation, healthcare, tourism and manufacturing. The main focus of the Road Show was placed on marketing the Sultanate of Oman as a trade and investment destination, emphasizing that nation's key geo-strategic location, infrastructure and incentives, as well as the benefits of the U.S. - Oman Free Trade Agreement. Commercial leads generated by the Free Trade Agreement will be the centerpiece of the visit, but the Road Show also presented unique opportunities to build people-to-people relationships that bolster longstanding ties of friendship between the Sultanate of Oman and the United States. These ties extend back to the 1833 Treaty of Amity and Commerce, America's first treaty of its kind in the Arab World.
