Qatar Chamber hosted on Sunday an Omani delegation representing the Oman Centre for Commercial Arbitration to discuss co-operation ties with the Oman Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OCCI), especially in the areas of commercial arbitration.

During the meeting, Qatar Chamber chairman Sheikh Khalifa bin Jassim al-Thani met with the delegation led by OCCI deputy chairman for Administrative and Financial Affairs Rashid bin Amer al-Muslihi.

The meeting also discussed OCCI’s preparations for the regulation of Oman Centre for Commercial Arbitration, which was issued in October.

Sheikh Khalifa expressed the chamber's readiness to co-operate with OCCI and offered the expertise of the Qatar International Center for Reconciliation and Arbitration (Qicca).

Aside from Sheikh Khalifa, the Omani delegation met with Qicca board member for International Relations Dr Sheikh Thani bin Ali al-Thani; Qicca assistant secretary-general Ibrahim Shahbik, and Qicca principal legal counsel Dr Minas Khatchadourian. Their meeting discussed ways to enhance co-operation between both sides while the Oman Centre for Commercial Arbitration is being established.

Sheikh Thani said Qicca is prepared to co-operate with the Omani side by providing advice on regulations and all issues related to the arbitration centre’s work. He said Qicca is looking forward to benefit from the establishment of the Oman Centre for Commercial Arbitration and on the training workshops to be organised in Oman.

Al-Muslihi said the visit to Qicca helped them learn about its operations and policies, which would be beneficial in the establishment of regulations for the Oman Centre for Commercial Arbitration.

“Qicca is one of the most important arbitration centres to which Omani companies are looking to in solving their commercial disputes over the past few years,” al-Muslihi added.
