Oman – Meeting between Jean-Yves Le Drian and his counterpart (Paris, 16 January 2018)

Jean-Yves Le Drian, Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs, will receive his Omani counterpart Youssef bin al-Alawi on January 16.

Jean-Yves Le Drian and Youssef bin al-Alawi will address the main regional issues.

We maintain a relationship of trust with Oman, based on regular strategic dialogue. The next strategic dialogue session is scheduled to take place at the beginning of March in Muscat.

Bilateral trade between France and Oman amounted to €236 million during the first 10 months of 2017. France is the sixth largest contributor to direct investment in Oman with investment capital amounting to €1.2 billion. In the cultural field, France helps the sultanate showcase its heritage. The French and Omani authorities therefore decided to work together to renovate the Bait Fransa Museum (“French Museum”).
