Dr Hamed bin Suleiman al Aufi, Undersecretary at the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries Wealth inaugurated the Pakistani mango festival at The Sultan Center in Qurm on Monday.

Speaking on the occasion, H E Dr Aufi said, “I am delighted to see different varieties of mango at the festival. We are trying to develop our agriculture sector and I think we can learn a lot from Pakistan in this area. We should strengthen our trade ties with Pakistan. We can open doors to allow Pakistani products pass through Oman to the rest of the Middle East. I think some formal collaboration should also exist between the two countries in the area of science and technology.”
