H E Hasani who was the guest of honour at the event participated in the fair to mark the 40th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations between the two countries. The sultanate has set up a stall at the fair designed like a castle, reflecting the architecture and rich heritage of the country.

The Korean minister after touring the sultanate's stall said that the event has helped him to know more about the Omani civilisation. He also expressed his wish to visit the country in the near future. Yoo also noted that participation of the sultanate in the fair will help consolidate relations between the two countries.

The Omani stall also includes a corner called Tajalyat (manifestations), featuring paintings of Omani artists like Aliya al Farsiyah. In addition, the section also has pictures that display the heritage, culture and tourism of Oman.

Documentaries on Oman's achievements during the Blessed Renaissance are being screened for visitors to the stall.

The Royal Oman Symphony Orchestra is also performing at the stall as part of the fair.

H E Dr Hasani also visited the stall set up by Saudi Arabia where he was briefed on the cultural, economic and environmental developments in the country.

The fair will end on June 22.
