India may weigh negotiating preferential Trade Agreement with Oman: Piyush Goyal.
May 13, 2022

India may consider negotiating a preferential trade agreement (PTA) with Oman and that there is a huge potential to boost bilateral trade and investments between the countries, commerce and industry minister Piyush Goyal said on Thursday.
'We may consider doing a preferential trade agreement with Oman to begin with because we are looking for a comprehensive agreement between the GCC region and India, (which is) under active discussion,' Goyal said at the India-Oman business council meeting.
GCC or Gulf Cooperation Council comprises Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
India has already inked a trade pact with the UAE and is under 'active discussions with GCC for a comprehensive trade agreement', Goyal said.
The India-Oman bilateral trade has increased to $9.94 billion during 2021-2022 from $5.4 billion in FY21.
Oman's minister for commerce, industry and investment promotion Qais bin Mohammed al Yousef invited Indian businesses to explore opportunities. He is leading a 40-member delegation to India.
