The inaugural Gulf Business Summit, to be hosted in Muscat, is expected to strengthen Saudi-Oman cooperation in energy, technology, and sustainability. On Oct. 9, policymakers and business executives from the two nations will exchange information and ideas at an event hosted by Gulf executives Circle, Muscat Media Group's business networking platform.

Titled “Building Bridges: Exploring the Economic and Strategic Implications of Saudi Arabia-Oman MoUs and Vision Plans,” the summit is supported by Oman’s Ministry of Commerce, Investment and Industry Promotion and its Energy Association. 

Commenting on the event, Paula Colard, director of Gulf Leaders Circle said: “We are happy to welcome over 70 dignitaries from KSA for the event on Monday. We are sure that this will be the first of many such summits created to encourage business partnerships between GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) nations.”

Panelists at the event, being held at Jumeirah Muscat Bay, include Mansoor Ali Al-Abdali, managing director of OQ Gas Networks, Dhafir Al-Shehri, director of Saudi Water Partnership Co., and Saif bin Hamad Al-Ramahi, clean energy specialist at Environment Authority of Oman, as per arab news. 

Ahmed Essa Al-Zadjali, CEO of Muscat Media Group said: “We have identified a need gap in B2B (business-to-business) collaboration platforms and events, and hence decided to create Gulf Leaders Circle. “Often business leaders face limitations of time and geography, and the focus on internal growth supersedes external collaborative activities. GLC is here to change that."
