Oman's Minister for Foreign Affairs Yousuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah would be visiting India on February 28 at the invitation of External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid.


The visiting dignitary will be discussing bilateral, regional and other issues of mutual interest.

India's close and friendly relationship with Oman is based on historical people to people contacts. Oman is an important trading partner of India in the Gulf with two- way trade exceeding US$4.6 billion in 2012-13. India has been the topmost destination for Omani non-oil exports. Our two-way bilateral investments have reached over US$7.5 billion.

The contribution of over 700,000 strong vibrant Indian community in the progress and development of Oman is well acknowledged and appreciated.
