Muscat Street to be opened in Singapore today
SINGAPORE A celebration will be held on Thursday at Singapore’s popular Kampong Glam heritage district to mark the opening of Muscat Street.

The Singapore Minister of Foreign Affairs and Law, K. Shanmugam, and HE Sayyid Badr Bin Hamad Al Busaidi, Undersecretary at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, will preside over the opening ceremony.

Muscat Street was registered officially as a street in Singapore in 1909, said HE Zakaria Bin Hamad Al Saadi, Oman’s Consul-General to Singapore. The street got a facelift after an MOU was signed in the Sultanate in 2009 during the visit of the previous president of Singapore. The street signifies the historic ties between Oman and Singapore. He said Muscat Street leads to the Sultan Mosque, which is of historic significance to the Malay and Arab communities in Singapore. The street is not only an attraction for Omani visitors to Singapore but also for GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) nationals and other tourists.
