On June 12th, 2024, H.E. Dr. Ali Qassim Jawad AL LAWATI, President of the Royal Academy of Management (RAM) in Oman, visited the Korea Institute for International Economic Policy (KIEP) to meet with Sungbae AN, Vice President for External Affairs of KIEP, and discuss research on Korea-Gulf and Korea-Oman economic cooperation.

During the meeting, the delegation expressed its hope to cooperate with South Korea in terms of expanding research cooperation with Asian countries for economic diversification in fields, such as energy (hydrogen and renewable energy) and high-tech industry.

In particular, as an institution mainly focused on policy research for national policy-making, RAM expressed it hope to work with KIEP in future to expand cooperation with Korea.

Vice President Sungbae AN of KIEP emphasized that cooperation between Korea and Gulf national think tanks has become important as the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) signed the FTA with South Korea, amid growing uncertainty over energy security and supply chains due to geopolitical risks in the Middle East.

In addition, he valued the meeting with key figures from the RAM as an important opportunity to discuss the possibility of cooperative research between Korea and Oman at a time when the Korean government is seeking to expand cooperation with Gulf countries.

Furthermore, he said that it is necessary to enhance understanding of regional economic issues through continuous exchange of information and building a partnership between the two research institutes.
