U.S.-Oman Free Trade Agreement Survey

On January 1, 2009, the Oman-United States Free Trade Agreement went into force. The purpose was to increase our bilateral trade and investment, and to facilitate entry into each other’s markets. Eight years later we strive to strengthen our economic ties even further, and increase awareness and use of Oman’s only bilateral free trade agreement. Thank you for taking this survey to help us reach these goals. You can expect to see real results from your input.
