INDIA INVITES OMAN AS GUEST COUNTRY IN G-20 

India will assume the Presidency of the G-20 from 01 December 2022 to 30 November 2023. 

Under its Presidency, India is expected to host over 200 G-20 meetings across the country, in addition to the G-20 Leaders' Summit at the Heads of State / Government level on 09-10 September 2023 in New Delhi.

As part of its Presidency of the G-20, India has extended a special invitation to the Sultanate of Oman to participate in the G-20 Summit and meetings as a Guest country. Other countries invited as Guests include Bangladesh, Egypt, Mauritius, Netherlands, Nigeria, Singapore, Spain, and UAE.

Ambassador of India to the Sultanate of Oman H.E. Amit Narang said that India’s invitation to Oman to participate as an esteemed Guest country during its G-20 Presidency is a mark of the special friendship between the two countries.  He noted that this reiterates Oman’s position as one of India’s foremost partners in the Gulf region and beyond and a testimony to the strategic and multidimensional relationship between both countries.

Ambassador Narang further noted that this will be an opportunity for the Sultanate of Oman to participate in the premier intergovernmental forum of the world’s major developed and developing economies, accounting for nearly 85% of global GDP, 75% of international trade and two-thirds of the world population. Oman’s participation in the meetings of the G-20 will also provide a useful platform to further deepen and strengthen the multifaceted cooperation between the Governments of India and Oman.
