Zambia seeks enhanced economic cooperation with Oman, as Ambassador Mulima submits Letter of Credence


The Zambian government has called for enhanced economic cooperation with the Sultanate of Oman.

Duncan Mulima, Zambia’s Ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, urged Omani businesses to explore the vast opportunities available in various sectors of the Zambian economy for the mutual benefit of both countries.

Mulima made this appeal after presenting his credentials to His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tarik of Oman at Al Alam Palace in Muscat.

Speaking after the presentation of credentials on June 3, 2024, Mulima informed the Sultan that President Hakainde Hichilema was keen to enhance the relations between the two countries.

“The Sultanate of Oman is a major producer of petroleum products and fertilizer, and has a robust tourism sector,” Mulima noted.

He highlighted Zambia’s vast arable land, mineral wealth, rich wildlife, and natural resources as sectors that could benefit from partnerships with Oman.

“Enhanced partnership between Zambia and Oman has the potential to increase bilateral and economic benefits for both countries,” he said.

In response, Sultan Haitham bin Tarik welcomed President Hichilema’s call for stronger business relations and indicated that the Omani government would expedite communication with Zambia to accelerate economic engagements.

Ambassador Mulima was among twelve ambassadors who presented their Letters of Credence to the Sultan of Oman.

The other ambassadors were from Mauritius, Burma, the European Union, Canada, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Chile, Rwanda, Burundi, Georgia, Serbia, and Cambodia.
