Oman, Dutch lawyers to share knowledge and expertise

The Omani Lawyers Association (OLA) has decided to collaborate with its Dutch counterparts to share knowledge and exchange expertise.

Dr Mohammed bin Ibrahim al Zadjali, OLA Chairman, said, "The aim of OLA delegation visit to Netherlands and Belgium was to learn about the Dutch experience in the legal and judicial fields, and it included a visit to the International Court of Justice in The Hague."

He spoke to the Observer on the sidelines of a seminar, organised by the Netherlands Embassy, which was attended by businessmen and legal professionals from the Netherlands and Oman.

The participants discussed promising opportunities, especially investments in petrochemicals, ports, clean energy, hydrogen and food security.

Dr Hamad bin Hamdan al Rubaie, Vice Chairman of OLA explained that the presence of a constellation of lawyers during the visit was helpful in initiating communication with lawyers and law firms in the Netherlands especially in drafting contracts.

"The OLA always seeks to inform its members of international and local experiences. Previous visits to the UK, France, the Czech Republic, Japan, Singapore and the rest of the European Union, gave us incentives to enhance the Omani lawyers experience," Khalifa al Rahbi, Secretary of OLA, said.

"The success of the partnership between the port of Notre Dame and the port of Sohar is an encouraging success for more aspects of investment and cooperation between the two countries in promising economic fields, especially in energy, nitrogen, ports and tourism," said Shaikh Dr Abdullah bin Salem al Harthy, Sultanate of Oman's Ambassador to the Netherlands, who spoke about cooperation between the two friendly countries and the efforts made to facilitate bilateral investments.

Stella Kluth, Ambassador of the Kingdom of Netherlands to the Sultanate of Oman, praised cooperation between the two countries, pointing out that there are areas that are still looking for investors from the Kingdom, and this symposium helps encourage investments in the Sultanate of Oman.
