The Communications Regulatory Authority (CRA) met with a high-level Omani delegation representing the Ministry of Transport and Communications, Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA), and Space Communication Technologies Company, at CRA headquarters, with the attendance of representatives from Es’hailSat, the Qatar Satellite Company. During the visit, CRA and TRA signed an agreement for coordination of satellite networks.

The signing of this agreement stems from the joint cooperation that started by an earlier visit from CRA to its counterpart at its headquarters in Muscat, where the two regulatory bodies signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to enhance their cooperation in the field of radio spectrum monitoring. On the sidelines of the signing, the two parties discussed various matters of mutual interest and prospects for future cooperation, including signing another MoU for cooperation in  spectrum monitoring during Qatar's hosting of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, exchanging of  experiences related to satellite projects, in addition to training and development of Omani and Qatari competencies in the field of radio spectrum monitoring.
