Omani British Friendship Association


The Omani British Friendship Association was formed in 1991 to demonstrate the longstanding and close relationship between the Sultanate of Oman and the United Kingdom and to promote bilateral trade, partnerships and investment between the two countries. lt has two Patrons; HH Sayyid Haitham bin Tarik Al Said and HRH the Duke of York, both of whom assumed their roles in 2003.

The Association has two co-chairmen, one from each country, and two secretaries, also one from each country.  Formal membership, in Oman, is limited by the constitution to Omani business persons.  On the British side, a more informal arrangement exists so that members are drawn from the ranks of any British company involved in business in Oman, or who are keen to explore opportunities in the Sultanate.

The prime objective of the Business Council is to develop and strengthen personal and business links between our two countries. This is carried out through:


  • Formal round table discussions held twice a year, alternating between Oman and the UK
  • The introduction of working groups to follow up on action points
  • Meetings between the OBFA Executive Committee and senior British businesspersons and officials resident in Oman
  • Informal contacts and bilateral exchange visits


OBFA's particular strength is the senior level of its members and their ability to inform key decision-makers on issues of common interest which can help facilitate trade and investment between Oman and Britain.
