Expansion of Mutual Tourism Flows: Roscongress Foundation Holds Meeting with Delegation of the Sultanate of Oman's Chamber of Commerce and Industry
Alexander Stuglev, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of the Roscongress Foundation, met with a delegation from the Sultanate of Oman's Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Moscow.
In his welcoming speech, Alexander Stuglev emphasized: “Establishing direct contact between Russian and Omani companies is of great importance for strengthening mutual trust, finding common ground and building strategic cooperation. As early as the end of April, under the umbrella of SPIEF, a delegation from the Roscongress Foundation will visit Oman. I am confident that this platform will bring together industries, enabling both countries' business communities to reach a new level of agreement.”
During the meeting, the parties discussed possible formats of cooperation. In particular, they discussed the expansion of mutual tourism between Russia and Oman and the signing of an agreement between the Roscongress Foundation and the Sultanate of Oman’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry during SPIEF 2023.
Humanitarian cooperation was another topic of discussion. The cultures of Russia and Oman are rich and unique, and everything should be done to preserve them for future generations. “Cultural and humanitarian ties between our countries have been developing well lately. I would like to point out that Hans-Joachim Frey, the main founder of the Art Bridge Foundation and a partner of the Roscongress Foundation, held the first Dresden Opera Ball in the United Arab Emirates in Dubai last November. I suggest thinking about holding a similar event in Oman,” said Alexander Stuglev.
"The relationship between Russia and Oman is strategic. Trade between the countries is growing, and we hope that forums will be great platforms to accelerate growth," said Siham Ahmed Yousuf Al Harthi, board member of the Oman Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and chief executive officer and founder of Siham Development and Investment.
The St. Petersburg International Economic Forum will take place on 14–17 June. As is tradition, the opening day of SPIEF will host an SME Forum, the Drug Security Forum, and events within the Arctic agenda.
