With this goal in mind, a trade delegation led by Eduard Muricky, Deputy Minister of Industry and Entrepreneurship, is on a three-day tour of the Sultanate of Oman hosted by the Oman-Czech Society and the Oman Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OCCI).
“We are looking forward to work with the Sultanate in various areas such as trade, commerce, investments, and tourism”, Eduard Muricky told the Observer.
The members of the trade delegation include representatives of various sectors such as technology, textiles, drones, industrial pipe manufacturers, defence, pumping, oil and gas, besides nuclear energy and petrochemicals, ceramics and tile industry and interior design.
Oman-Czech bilateral trade relations are on a relatively steady mode and in 2019, Oman imported goods worth $57m ($60m in 2018) while exports were $19m ($20 million in 2018). Oman exports fishes, cables, spare parts and plastics to the Czech Republic while its imports are cars, transmission equipment, oil and gas equipment, among others.
