He spoke about what he knew about the Sultanate’s cultural communication and openness to the nations and peoples since ancient times till date.

HE Dr Mohammad Bin Said Al Ma’amari, Scientific Adviser at the Minister’s Office and Supervisor General of External Exhibitions, said the exhibition of religious tolerance in Oman is a continuing opportunity, a renewed effort and on-going quest for religions, cultures and peoples who love goodness, happiness and security. He said the goal of the exhibition since the beginning has been to find a common ground among people and civilisation, and this gets support and presence of various institutions.

He added the exhibition has enjoyed a new positive interaction since its inception in April 2010, and has now grown and expanded to a wide range of workshops for a better mobility in the relations between religions and cultures in countries visited by the exhibition so far in Germany, Spain, Netherlands, Britain, Belgium and Estonia.
