Faisal bin Turki Al Said, the Sultanate of Oman’s Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, emphasised the depth of the two countries’ strong ties over the years, referring to a new trend in the Sultanate that keeps up with what is happening in the Kingdom in line with Vision 2030.
“There is a revived renaissance in the Sultanate of Oman, as indicated in its Vision 2030,” he stated in an interview with Al Arabiya.net, “which will accompany the renaissance movement in Saudi Arabia, under Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s leadership.”
“The limits of commercial exchange between the two nations are considered relatively minor in light of the current discussions, which will carry on a qualitative economic leap between the two countries, totalling roughly SR$10bn, according to the released statistics,” he continued.
The leadership in the Sultanate and Saudi Arabia are determined to inaugurate the port before the end of this year, which will establish a new partnership between the two countries, according to ambassador Al Said.
The Omani envoy in Riyadh also stated that Saudi Arabia’s economic movement affects all Gulf countries, emphasising the importance of the current timing to improve collaboration at the Gulf and bilateral levels.
