Despite being one of the smaller economies of the region, the Sultanate of Oman has multispectral ties with India encompassing trade, commerce, energy and defence as well as strong expatriate linkages. During 2017, bilateral trade had increased marginally and the much anticipated visit of Prime Minister Modi to Muscat took place in early 2018. Viewed in the larger context of the regional tension, rivalry and public acrimony, Oman has been politically stable and peaceful. As the Omani economy is showing signs of recovery, the vexed question of succession is increasingly becoming clearer, thereby requiring a demonstrative Indian engagement with it.
