On Sunday, March 11, 2018, an Invest SVG delegation led by Executive Director Ms Annette Mark, accompanied by Ms Shanna Browne Investment Facilitation Manager and Ms Angenella Young Investment Facilitator arrived in Muscat, Oman.
The team was received upon arrival by Honorary Consul Designate Mr Deron Grant, who is also an official associate member of Invest SVG since January 2017.
With a tight schedule, the first meeting with investors commenced almost immediately.
The two days of meetings ranged from tourism infrastructure development, renewable energy, support funding and grants, real estate development (private and joint venture related) air services (commercial and cargo) agriculture and participation in the Oman Expo Exhibition.
The team on Monday evening, March 12, 2018, conducted a presentation with private business owners, travel agents and investment agents in Oman to promote SVG as a destination and highlight the various opportunities SVG has to offer.
That engagement was hosted by Honorary Consul Designate Grant at the Modern Gulf Institute in Muscat.
Meetings and presentations have shown many positive expressions of interest and cooperation going forward.
The wheels of cooperation among two countries which have never been engaged on this level are already showing positive signs of things to come.
The team after a hectic two days in Oman departed Muscat on to UAE for continued business meetings.
