Oman in bid to boost exports to Egypt

MUSCAT, May 17, 2017

A delegation of 19 high-profile Omani exporters is participating on a two-day Ithraa-led trade delegation to Egypt.

The mission included site visits to companies in Cairo as well as B2B meetings with Egyptian importers, agents and manufacturers.

“We are in Cairo to introduce our hosts to a range of high quality, Oman-made products, forge better connections with existing business contacts and establish new relationships too, particularly in food processing, marble, pharmaceuticals and plastics,” explained Nasima Al Balushi, Ithraa’s director general of Export Development.

Over 100 Egyptian companies attended Wednesday’s B2B meetings. “The visit has proven to be incredibly useful on a number of levels, as it is given participating Omani firms an excellent opportunity both to highlight their high-end offer in food production, marble, pharmaceuticals and plastics as well as communicate to our Egyptian counterparts that we are open for business,” added Al Balushi.

Founded in 1997, Ithraa is a government-run, ISO and Investor in People certified inward investment and export promotion agency. – TradeArabia News Service
