Showkutally Soodhun, Ambassador of Mauritius to the United Arab Emirates and the Gulf Cooperation Council countries, presented his credentials to Haitham Bin Tarik, Sultan of Oman, on June 3 at Al Alam Palace in Muscat.

Showkutally Soodhun thus becomes the first Mauritian ambassador to present his credentials to this state of 4.5 million inhabitants. It is surrounded by the United Arab Emirates to the north, Saudi Arabia to the west and Yemen to the southwest.

Twelve ambassadors, including Showkutally Soodhun, presented their credentials on the occasion.

There was talk of opportunities to develop exchanges between Mauritius and Oman, in the field of trade and tourism. The Sultan informed that a committee will be set up to review bilateral cooperation in different sectors, including the importation of petroleum products and medicines, among others. The Sultan also mentioned that Oman and India concluded negotiations on a comprehensive economic agreement. In this context, economic cooperation between Mauritius, Oman and India can also be considered.

Oman plays an important role in the Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA). Its strategic geographic position on the southeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula makes it a crucial player in the Indian Ocean region. Its location gives it direct access to the main shipping routes that facilitate trade between Asia, Africa and Europe. Oman contributes to the IORA economic and maritime security agenda.
