Vice Governor of St Petersburg Visits Oman
On April 10, Mr Khalil bin Abdallah Al Khonji, President of the Omani CCI, held a meeting with Mr Oleg Markov, Vice Governor of St Petersburg.
Mr Al Khonji underlined the importance of the Third International Exhibition “Arabia-EXPO”, due to be held in the period May 30 to June 1 in St Petersburg, and the great role it could play in the process of developing Russia’s relations with Oman and the Arab world on the whole.
He also appealed for participation of Omani private companies in the Exhibition and the events associated with it. According to Mr Al Khonji, taking part in such events creates space for establishing new investment and business ties.
Mr Markov, in his turn, noted the importance of developing partner ties between the two countries and the necessity of Omani participation in “Arabia-EXPO 2013”. He also noted that the Arab companies would be given privileges for taking part in the forthcoming events.
