Oman Business Registration Consultations

CLDP Senior Counsel James Filpi, Attorney-Advisor Drew Miller, Mayer Brown Counsel Tom Jersild, World Bank Regulatory Policy Consultant Andrii Palianystia, and USTR Regional Director Jason Buntin organized a half-day working session on October 26, 2011 in Muscat, Oman with officials of the Omani Ministry of Commerce and Industry, the Public Authority for Investment Promotion and Export Development (PAIPED), and attorneys from the Said Al Shahry Law Firm in Oman.  The working session was designed to address ongoing difficulties facing U.S. and other foreign firms attempting to establish branch offices and subsidiaries in the Sultanate of Oman.  Prior the working session, the CLDP sponsored group held a roundtable breakfast with the American Business Council in Oman at the U.S. Embassy in order to hear concerns of and field questions from the local business community. As a result of the working session, PAIPED has decided to enlist CLDP's assistance in drafting and implementing a liberal Foreign Investment Law for the Sultanate.
