With the main revenue from oil, this Middle East country imports up to 60 percent of its food demand and the figure is likely to increase in the coming time because of its growing demand, which provides an opportunity for major Vietnamese exports, particularly agricultural products, to enter Oman and other Middle East markets.

The Oman delegation includes major companies which want to set up partnership with local businesses in construction, health, road traffic, trade, interior decoration, aquaculture, organic fertilizer, construction materials, food, tourism, oil and gas and electric devices.
