In a press conference on Tuesday celebrating Oman’s National Day, the Ambassador said His Majesty King Abdullah’s recent visit to Oman, his first since Sultan Haitham bin Tariq ascended to the throne, featured important discussions on cooperation in matters of mutual interest.

Maamari praised the 12,000 Jordanian expatriates in Oman for their contributions to the country’s development, noting that 3,500 Omanis are studying in Jordanian universities.

He emphasized the importance of tapping into available resources in both countries, particularly in the mining sector, and said that current trade exchange was “below aspirations”.

He stated that a large number of Omanis travel to Jordan for medical treatment due to the country’s reputable health care system, reaffirming continuous coordination on various issues of mutual interest.
