The Sultanate of Oman

UK Partner of Choice; Simon Burke, First Secretary Defence and Security and Director of International Trade at the British Embassy Muscat.

Britain is open for business as never before and our decision to leave the European Union has given us a golden opportunity to strengthen ties with our closest international partners, such as Oman. The UK is already the largest foreign direct investor in Oman and aims to increase this investment and to deepen our trading relationship. The announcement that BP and Oman Oil Company have signed an extended licensing agreements for phase 2 of the Khazzan gas field project and the Joint Venture agreement between Oman Drydock and Babcock are recent examples of UK investment into Oman.

We would like the UK to be the partner of choice for Oman businesses. We offer a free service for Omani companies to find partners in the UK for the supply of goods, services and investment.  Speak or email the British Embassy and provide an outline of the partnership, goods or services. We will then consult with experts, approach UK companies active in the region and advertise on the ‘Exporting is Great’ website (www.exportingisgreat.gov.uk/opportunities). The Embassy will filter the responses and provide introductions to suitable UK companies. There is no cost for this service and no commitment by either party.

Over the last few months we have helped LuLu to find UK goods, helped a large business family find leading UK IT partners, training partners and experts in renewables. We have also helped a contractor source sea-water pumps and a distributor find UK manufacturers of Health and Safety products.

Please contact the embassy when you see a new business opportunities or want to find UK suppliers of goods and services for your existing supply chains. The UK represents high quality, reliability, professionalism and fantastic value for money. Contact us on DIT.Muscat@fco.gov.uk or +968 24609002 to find out more.
