Business Sweden in Oman

an image
Oman is a modern economy in the Middle East with the potential to become a regional hub for trade and logistics at the crossroads between the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Swedish exports to Oman are limited but have grown over the past decades. Investments in private sector development present niched opportunities for both established and new Swedish companies in the market.

Oman is, like many countries in the region, heavily dependent on oil and gas which make up between 68-85% of the governments revenues. Oman is using enhanced oil recovery technology to increase oil production. In addition, the government has focused on diversifying the economy and improve the industrialization and the privatization. The government focus on sectors such as tourism, shipping and logistics, manufacturing and mining. Moreover, renewable energy is estimated to contribute to the economic growth of Oman ahead. Overall, these sectors in addition to the food sector, make up interesting fields for Swedish companies in Oman.

Oman is one of the easier countries to conduct business in, in the region. Oman has recent years made it easier to start a business in the country by improving employment and custom processed. To get construction permits and paying taxes are other areas which are relatively easy. Challenges for Swedish companies may be to take part of public investments and to understand the local legislative system. 

Business Sweden covers Oman through the regional office in Dubai. We carry out services such as market analyses, partner and distributor searches, establishment support, and public affairs management.
