In 2017, under the Czech Chamber of Commerce, the Czech-Oman Committee was established. It was focused on becoming a pre-eminent platform which uniquely connects economic and public diplomacy with the aim to deepen bilateral cooperation between the Czech Republic and the Sultanate of Oman.

Then in 2018, Czech-Oman Committee founders felt the need to establish a unique business platform. The Czech-Oman Business Council is therefore founded as an official program focusing on building business opportunities between both countries. The Czech-Oman Business Council is established under the law of the Czech Justice System and its members are a mix of Czech and Omani business entrepreneurs as well as senior managers from leading public and private corporations. We thrive for diversity and to broaden our reach, this way we can satisfy all business enquires.
