Her Excellency Hunaina Sultan Al Mughairay, Ambassador of the Sultanate of Oman, and The Honorable Stuart Holliday, President & CEO, Meridian International Center, will host a reception to celebrate the Oman-United States bilateral relationship with the installation of the model dhow Sultana. The dhow is a replica of the ship that docked in New York City in May 1840, carrying the first Arab Ambassador to the United States.
