The occasion also celebrated the achievement story of the US-Oman Free Trade Agreement (FTA). The 3rd Street Donuts café is owned and operated by Omani entrepreneur Mundhir al Alawi, who stated he fell in adore with American donuts throughout his research in Los Angeles, California. During a quick tour of the baking facilities in the store’s kitchen, Alawi pointed out some bags of US flour and other components, imported duty-totally free beneath the FTA.

Alawi stated he noted a lack of high quality donuts in Oman when he returned from the US numerous years ago, which led him to believe why Omanis can’t have donuts that are soft, fluffy and moist, like the ones he enjoyed in the US.

Alawi stated, “I’m thankful to the US-Oman Free Trade Agreement, which allows me to import US flour and other ingredients that ensure the same quality, freshness, and taste of the donuts I loved in Los Angeles.”

H E Sievers remarked, “I’m happy to see a real-life case of an Omani entrepreneur who has utilised the FTA and is building a stronger bond between our two great countries. Alawi’s story is a great example of the Oman-US people-to-people and business ties that the Discover America Festival is all about.”

The café specialises in fresh and produced-to-order donuts. The toppings and fillings in the donuts are distinctive to the Omani marketplace. The 3rd Street Donuts is situated behind The Sultan’s School. It is open from two-10pm each day and can be reached on Instagram at @3sdonuts.
