Led by Dr Salem bin Nasser Al Ismaily, the chairman of Ithraa, the three-day visit will include a series of meetings with senior Brunei government officials designed to enhance bilateral trade relations between the two countries.

With Brunei focusing on developing key clusters in the export-oriented manufacturing and services sectors, the Omani delegation will showcase the Sultanate’s competitive business environment and investment incentives as it looks to attract inward investment and promote the export of non-oil Omani products and services. The trade delegation’s visit has been organised following a series of high-level meetings and visits by Brunei government officials, including Crown Prince Hj Al Muhtadee Billah and the Pehin Dato Lim Jock Seng, minister of foreign affairs and trade.

Dr Al Ismaily will be joined by Dr Rashid bin Salim Al Masroori, chairman of Oman Food Investment Holding Company and chief executive officer of the Public Authority for Stores and Food Reserve; Saeed bin Saleh Al Kiyumi, chairman of the Oman Chamber of Commerce and Industry; Sayyid Faisal bin Turki Al Said, Ithraa director general of Marketing & Media; Ismail bin Ahmed Al Balushi, deputy chief executive officer, Special Economic Zone Authority Duqm; Eng. Hilal bin Hamed Al Hasani, CEO of the Public Establishment for Industrial Estates; Abdul Amir Saied Mohamed, deputy CEO of State General Reserve Fund; Mulham Al Jarf, deputy CEO of Oman Oil Company; Nabil bin Abdulla Al Ghassani, CEO of Takamul Investment Company; and Eng. Khamis bin Mubarak Al Kiyumi, chairman, Almadina Real Estate.

“Oman and Brunei enjoy strong and historic bilateral relations and as the two countries enter into a new stage of economic growth, it is only natural that we broaden and deepen our trading ties,” said Sayyid Faisal Al Said.

“Ithraa is tasked with driving non-oil Omani exports as well as attracting strategic inward investment to the Sultanate, it is in this capacity that we have identified target sectors and leading Omani businesses that will be of significant interest to our hosts in Brunei. Indeed, we are confident the visit will yield positive returns for both nations,” he added.
