Abstract

Geographically, the Sultanate of Oman is one of the Gulf Co-operation Countries. It is surrounded by three Arab countries-the United Arab Emirates, Yemen, and Saudi Arabia. The population is almost three million, of which around one million are expatriates, mainly from South Asia (India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh). The Omani government has a long-term vision to shift the country's economy from one that is highly dependent on oil and gas to one that is more diverse, with tourism as a key contributor.
