On the last day of his West Asia tour, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday met industry leaders of the Gulf and West Asia region at the India-Oman business meeting in Muscat and visited a Shiva temple and the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, which is the biggest mosque in Oman. At the India-Oman business meet, Modi pitched India as an attractive destination to do business and spoke on the investment opportunities in the country. Modi, who arrived in Muscat on Sunday from Dubai on the last leg of his three-nation tour, also met Deputy Prime Minister for International Relations and Cooperation Affairs of Oman, Sayyid Asa’ad bin Tariq Al Said.
The two leaders discussed intensification of bilateral cooperation in areas of mutual interest, External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted. “Four countries in 4-days strengthening our footprint in Gulf and West Asia!

Pitching India as an attractive destination to do business, complementing our expanding strategic partnership,” Kumar said.
