Redeveloped Muscat Street to enhance Kampong Glam

The Muscat Street redevelopment project will be officially opened on Thursday.

Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister for Law K. Shanmugam will co-officiate the launch event with Oman’s Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Sayyid Badr Hamad Al-Busaidi.

The project is a joint initiative between Singapore and Oman.

The redeveloped Muscat Street will provide a new space for the local community to gather and organise social activities, as well as to enhance Kampong Glam.

At the launch event, there will be dance performances by Omani and local Malay dance troupes.

There will also be an Omani photo exhibition, as well as an Omani henna artist and an Omani calligrapher displaying his wares.
