Minister Nkoana-Mashabane on a Working Visit to Oman
International Relations and Cooperation Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane is visiting Muscat, Sultanate of Oman, today, 22 May 2017, where she is meeting representatives of the Government of the Sultanate of Oman as part of efforts to strengthen relations.
The visit is in line with South Africa’s aim to expand bilateral cooperation with the Sultanate and deepen both political and economic relations.
Diplomatic relations between South Africa and Oman were first established after South Africa's first democratic elections in 1994. Since then, relations between the two countries have expanded in various fields, aided by the exchange of high-level visits, the negotiation of bilateral agreements and greater people-to-people contact.
In 2010, South Africa and Oman signed an Agreement on the Establishment of a Partnership Forum, aimed at facilitating cooperation in the fields of politics, arts and culture, justice and constitutional development, higher education and training, agriculture and trade and investment.
