Good to see this initiative and we hope to see Oman among the 50+ countries already registered to attend the 12th World Free Zone Convention the following week 10th to 13th December, also in London. Zones globally need to share knowledge and benchmark with others to compete. Speakers include Secretary General of UJNCTAD, a Deputy Director of the World Trade Organisation, the World Bank, the World Customs Organisation etc. Come and join us, Oman!
