Indian Embassy hosts B2B meeting with Omani businesses on March 14

By Business Reporter — MUSCAT:  MARCH 12 – The Indian Embassy, Muscat, is hosting a Business-to-Business (B2B) meeting between Indian and Omani companies participating in BIG Show Oman (March 13-16, 2017). The B2B Meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 14, 2017 at 6pm at the premises of the Embassy in the Diplomatic Enclave, Al Khuwair. The event will be graced by the presence of Dr Ali bin Masoud al Sunaidy (pictured), Minister of Commerce and Industry, as the Chief Guest.
Around 75 Indian companies, representing various sectors, will be participating in BIG SHOW Oman. For the first time, two leading Indian business chambers, namely the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) and the Federation of Indian Export Organisations (FIEO), have organised participation of Indian companies and will be setting up an ‘India Pavilion’ at BIG Show which will be held at Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Indian companies will be representing a number of sectors, including building materials, construction equipment, ceramics & tiles, bathroom fittings, wood machinery, interior design, stones & marbles, landscape designing, semi-precious gemstone, paints & chemicals, coir products, concrete & cement,  footwear, food processing equipments, leather goods, surgical instruments, hand tools, and so on.
The B2B Meeting is a part of the Embassy’s endeavours to enhance contacts between business communities of India and Oman. B2B Meetings serve as a useful platform for forging business tie-ups and contribute towards tapping the huge potential for trade and investments between India and Oman. Indian Embassy has been organising similar B2B Meetings for Indian companies participating at other international trade exhibitions organised in Muscat.
Even though mutual investments between Indian and Oman have remained robust, there has been a decline in bilateral trade during past two years. Mutual exchange of trade delegations and participation in trade exhibitions and investment promotion forums are considered very useful tools in enhancing bilateral trade and increasing mutual investments.
