ABOUT

THE FRENCH WEEK ENTERS A NEW ERA

          For the past two years, the French Week has been orchestrated as a tribute to France in the Sultanate of Oman. For its first edition in 2018, this event gathered more than 8 000 participants while last year, nearly 15 000 people took part of the celebrations. Facing that success, it has been decided, along with our faithful partners to renew the operation.

           The #FrenchWeek2020 is the biggest event organized by the French embassy, here in Muscat. It is open to all stakeholders and attracts many interested and interesting people. Each year, a number of side events take place around the capital city of Muscat in several ways and places including the embassy itself. 

The French Week team is delighted and honored to be once again a the stem of these exciting moments bringing the countries closer together culturally and economically.

            The event created at the instigation of HE Mr. Renaud Salins, Ambassador of France to the Sultanate has further diversified this year base to accommodate a much wider client and visitor. The French Week currently adresses four pillars of French identity and tradition of excellence such as luxury, culture, food, science and business

            Get ready for these exciting venues !
