Knowledge transfer between Rotterdam and SOHAR

The Omani city of Sohar has played a role in global sea trade for centuries. It’s even said that Sinbad the Sailor came from there. The history of today’s modern sea port, SOHAR Port & Freezone, is somewhat more recent. This is a 50/50 joint venture between the Port of Rotterdam Authority and the government of the Sultanate of Oman.
