SQCC hosted members of the Young Professionals in International Affairs Group

Thursday, January 28, 2016

The Sultan Qaboos Cultural Center (SQCC) hosted 30 members of the Young Professionals in International Affairs group January 28. Young Professionals in International Affairs is an independent, non-partisan forum to discuss international issues through discussions, cultural exchanges, author presentations and networking events. At SQCC members participated in a presentation about Omani history and culture, and a tour of the cultural exhibition where they learned about Omani food, dress, and traditional handicrafts. Though none of the members had previously been to Oman, some had spent time in the Middle East, and another plans to travel to Oman soon. Their experiences with the region gave SQCC the opportunity to highlight the differences and similarities in geography, culture, and norms between Oman and its neighbors, and give insight about visiting.
