about oman.

The Sultanate of Oman lies on the south-eastern cost of the Arabian Peninsula, sharing land borders with the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen. Historically, Muscat was the principal trading port of the Persian Gulf region, and one of the most important trading posts of the Indian Ocean.

Categorised as a high-income economy, Oman ranks as the 74th most peaceful country in the world, according to the Global Peace Index. Oman has modest oil reserves compared to its GCC neighbours. A significant portion of its economy involves tourism and the trade of seafood, dates, and other agricultural produce.


Oman’s main industry sectors include crude oil production and refining, natural and liquefied natural gas production, construction, and the production of materials such as cement, copper, steel, chemicals, and optic fibre. The country does not have the immense oil resources of some of its neighbours, and its complex geography makes exploration and production an expensive challenge.

Aware of its dependency on non-renewable energy sources, the Omani Government has increased funding for sectors based on renewable natural resources that can provide sustainable growth and employment opportunities. Likewise, the Government has moved ahead with the privatisation of its utilities, the development of a body of commercial law to facilitate foreign invest, and increased budgetary outlays.

recent reforms.

Oman transformed from a tribal desert country into a functioning modern economy in the short space of three decades. By all metrics; economic growth rates, social indices, the investment climate, technology use, and global links, Oman is considered to be a high-income economy.

The country’s current five-year plan focuses on strengthening the private sector, accelerating privatisation and the number of public-private partnerships, utilising local human resource capabilities, and diversifying sectoral and production bases. Towards this goal, the Government has invested in income-generating projects in industry, mining, agriculture, and fisheries, and elicited international business advisory services and modelling frameworks, to aid with banking sector reform.


It’s estimated that up to 45% of Oman’s workforce is made up of foreign nationals. Expatriate workers are overwhelmingly from the Asian subcontinent, and Indian, Bangladeshi and Pakistani nationals together make up close to 85% of the foreign-born workforce.

Professionals working in managerial and white collar occupations, are usually based in the private sector, in accountancy, banking and finance, VAT and tax, construction and real estate, manufacturing, engineering, and supply chain, HR, technology and digital, sales and marketing, or legal roles.


The country’s Omanisation program has been in place since 1988, working toward the replacement of expatriates with trained Omani personnel. Sectoral Omanisation quotas are now enforced, and the hiring of Omani nationals in every business has become mandatory. As such, most foreign companies in Oman have registered Omanisation plans.
