A nine-member delegation led by Maqbool Ali Sultan, Industries and Commerce Minister of Oman, called on the Chief Minister Narendra Modi today to discuss ways to increase partnership between Gujarat and Oman in trade and commerce.
The delegation discussed various issues related to trade, commerce, industry and exports during their meeting with the Chief Minister, an official release said today.
During the vibrant Gujarat investors' summit in last January, Oman had signed an MoU with the Gujarat government for a port project in the state.
Modi and the delegation discussed the concession agreement to be signed by Gujarat and Oman regarding the project for which MoU was signed earlier.
Meanwhile, Oman minister also extended invitation to Modi to visit free trade zone, international trans-shipment hub and Sohar port in Oman.
Modi assured the delegation that the state government would soon send a delegation to Oman. He said Gujarat has the longest coastline which can serve as a platform to enhance trade between Gulf countries and India.
