Muscat (UNA-OIC) – The Saudi-Omani Joint Business Council convened its second meeting in Muscat today, with the participation of Saudi Minister of Investment Eng. Khalid bin Abdulaziz Al-Falih, Oman’s Minister of Commerce, Industry and Investment Promotion Qis bin Mohammad Al-Yousef, and a number of officials from both sides.
During his speech, Eng. Al-Falih praised last July’s historic visit of Sultan Haitham bin Tariq Al Said to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and his meeting with Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, deputy premier and minister of defense.
He pointed out that the visit to the Kingdom was Sultan Haitham’s first foreign trip after assuming the reins of government, which bears great meanings indicating the depth and sincerity of the relations between the two countries, the two leaderships and the two brotherly peoples.
Monday’s meeting discussed means of promoting intra-trade between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Sultanate of Oman, and the formation of joint committees in the targeted sectors.
