1 Citation (Scopus)

Abstract

The Sultanate of Oman has a cluster of laws regulating the relationship between foreign
investors and Omani society. Oman has tried to maintain a balance between its
national and regional commitments in this regard. This article provides an in-depth
analysis of the Foreign Capital Investment Law (OFCIL) as well as related laws in order
to articulate standards of investment protection and to provide a road map for foreign
investors in the Sultanate. A comparison with some Arab laws is undertaken in order
to highlight weaknesses that can be improved in OFCIL.
