OmanThe seminar will be attended by the authorities in the Sultanate, researchers, scientists, and experts in the field of heritage. HE Salim Bin Mohammed Al Mahrouqi, Undersecretary at the Ministry of Heritage and Culture, said the seminar will shed light on the different surveys, and studies conducted in the Sultanate in the past decades, which reflect the Sultanate's belief that heritage is a human history which is owned by everyone.

The Sultanate seeks to register more sites to the UNESCO World Heritage list in order to highlight the Sultanate's experiment in this field, he said. Al Mahrouqi pointed that the Sultanate has many sites in the world heritage list including Bahla Fort which was registered in 1987, 'Bat, Al Khatm & Al Aien' site which was registered in 1988, Frankincense land which was registered in 2000 and the Aflaj system which was registered in 2006.
