Oman has a population of 3.4 million and is neighboured by UAE, Saudi Arabia and Yemen.
It is known as the oldest independent state in the Arab world and, until recently, one of the regions’ most isolated countries. The current economic stance in Oman is one of economic openness. Sultan Qaboos Bin Said has pursued policies to modernise the economy and position the Sultanate as an active player in the global market place.
Oman is actively seeking to reduce dependence on oil, develop national infrastructure and take advantage of a growing service and tourism sector.
