In an initiative to promote trade and tourism, Pakistan and Oman are planning to start a ferry service between the two countries, the sources from the Interior Ministry revealed, adding that the development will link Pakistan seaports with that of Dubai, Oman and Iran.
In a recent meeting between Oman’s Ambassador to Pakistan Omar Ahmed Al-Marhoon and Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, it was decided that a ferry service between the two countries will be started soon, which will connect Middle eastern seaports with Karachi and Gwadar.
While talking to the media, Ambassador Al-Marhoon had said, “Ferry service between Pakistan and Oman will start soon. It will definitely boost the trade and tourism between the two countries.”
The government officials believe that the ferry service will help the people to travel to Oman, Dubai and Iran, through alternate routes. Also, the development will open up new possibilities of business and trade between the countries.
To facilitate the people of Oman, the Pakistan government is also planning to ease visa requirements so that the citizens can have easy access to travelling.
