Wednesday, April 4, 2018

On Wednesday 4 April 2018, SQCC welcomed a group from (THIS) for Diplomats. The group included Omani, Mexican, French and Egyptian diplomats as well as THIS volunteers. The group toured SQCC’s permanent exhibition where they learned about the aflaj irrigation system, Oman's maritime history, and the role of frankincense in Omani hospitality.

Thereafter, Her Excellency Hunaina Al Mughairy, Ambassador of Oman to the United States delivered a speech on the role of the Omani woman in society. After Her Excellency's remarks, the groups watched two videos. The first, “Why Oman”, depicted the beauty of Oman, everyday life in Oman, and tourism in Oman. The second video focused on Oman's fashion designers. The group concluded their visit with a lunch highlighting traditional Omani cuisine and received Omani gifts of frankincense burners (majmars) and frankincense.
