UK-Oman Digital Hub

The UK-Oman Digital hub was launched by the British Embassy Muscat after the signing of the Oman-UK comprehensive agreement (2019) which promised an increase in co-operation in the areas of digital skills and cyber security. The Hub delivers two separate but linked work strands, ‘Cyber Skills’ and ‘Digital economy’.
