Welcome to EMBASSY OF THE KINGDOM OF THE NETHERLANDS
The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the Sultanate of Oman is not just the diplomatic representation of the Dutch government. We also serve as an entry point for both Dutch and Omani companies, knowledge and research institutes for doing business in either Oman or The Netherlands. Such economic diplomacy has developed since 1665, when the first official relations between both countries were established. Ever since, a strong and long lasting bilateral relationship developed. Traditionally, the Economic relations have focused on the Fossil Energy and the logisitics sectors. Currently, the Embassy is also focused on connecting potential partners from the Sultanate and the Kingdom to jointly meet the challenge in the so-called ‘water-energy-food nexus’. This inextricably linkage between these three essential elements of life, presents the world with a formidable challenge amid rising populations and climate change. With their vast expertise in water management and renewable energy, and being the world’s 2nd largest agrifood exporter, a variety of government agencies, companies, knowledge and research institutes from The Netherlands stand ready to partner up with their counterparts in Oman, and to share their expertise and innovative and sustainable solutions. The Embassy stands ready to assist in generating and creating such opportunities for cooperation.
