Oman - Workforce Last updated on Wednesday 14th April 2010

The Sultan knew from very early in his reign that Oman needed skilled workers and foreign expertise but he also acknowledged that Oman could not afford the armies of foreign workers who built the Kuwaiti and Saudi infrastructure. Thus, it is far more common to see Omanis in service jobs or doing manual work than it is to see other Gulf Arabs doing such jobs.
