Coinciding with the Sultanate of Oman Tourism Minister HE Dr. Rajiha bint Abdulameer bin Ali’s current weeklong visit to the Republic of India to boost tourism ties between the two countries.
Speaking on the occasion the Indian Ambassador noted that Oman and India shared a centuries old relationship and cultural affinities and the current visit by HE Dr. Rajiha would go a great way in further strengthening the ties, especially in the area of tourism. Like Oman, the Ambassador said, India had several places of historical significance and tourist interest and both countries could benefit with each other’s experience.
HE Anil Wadhwa was delighted to receive the copies of DestinationOman and said the book captured the charm and beauty of Oman through spectacular pictures and stories that would make it very easy for visitors and residents to enlighten themselves about the Sultanate, its culture and its traditions, and of course its places of tourist interest. “I would like to gift this book to my friends and visiting colleagues from India, which would help them in understanding the great nation Oman is” remarked the Ambassador.
The Ambassador said that he was particularly happy to know that it was an Indian citizen who had founded the DetinationOman webportal and the book. He noted Indians formed the largest expatriate workforce in Oman and many Indians had excelled in their respective fields and had made notable contribution to the development of the Sultanate which has been acknowledged and appreciated by people and the government of both the countries.
“It is often a visitor or a guest who could best appreciate the beauty and tourism potential of another country and that seems to be the case here too”, he stated.
DestinationOman is retailed through a chain of bookshops in Oman, UAE and other parts of the world.
