On the 24th-27th April 2018, a Slovak business delegation visited Oman. The mission was accompanied by a visit by the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance of the Slovak Republic Petr Kažimír, who on this occasion signed a double taxation agreement with his Omani counterpart to facilitate cooperation between Slovak and Omani business partners. The business delegation at the Omani Chamber of Commerce and Industry has already completed the 2nd Business Forum and B2B negotiations with Omani entrepreneurs. Contacts in the field of defense industry, mining and infrastructure construction appear to be promising for future cooperation. In Oman, the Slovak side also presented the G2G project of an early warning system against flood rains. Slovak companies also held talks at the Ministry of Fisheries and Agriculture and with the Minister for Oil and Gas, who was offered innovative solutions by Slovak companies for mining, drilling and the necessary service in this area.

There is great potential between Slovak and Omani universities not only for standard student exchanges, but also in joint research projects. He highlighted, for example, a research project on new deep drilling technologies eFusion, an important area for Oman as an oil and gas country.

„Thermal drilling technology has the great importance for the country. This technology is specific in that it is relatively contactless and there is a significant saving in drilling costs, possibly by up to 70%. The drilling speed is also more dynamic, „Cehlár explained after today’s visit to the University of Sultan Kábus in the Omani metropolis of Muscat. In addition, according to him, this technology can also create large underground spaces, which can be used for further utilization. „We would very much like to use contacts in this technology and possibly create closer scientific teams that could be used for education and research itself.“
