Doing Business with Oman.

Edited by Philip Dew and Anthony Shoult published by Kogan Page ISBN 0 7494 3811 8 price 40.00 5 [pounds sterling]

The Omani government has recently adopted a number of measures in seeking to diversify sources of national income--resulting in its accession to the WTO in 2000. Integral to this diversification programme is the privatisation policy which has seen increased Omani and foreign private sector participation in a number of fields, including electricity generation, water production and port and airport development and management.

Investment and taxation laws have been upgraded and government procedures streamlined, with the aim of attracting additional foreign capital and expertise.

This book will help international companies understand the dynamics behind the Omani economy and will provide a clear and accessible guide to business practice and trade and investment opportunities in Oman.

Topics covered include:

* Economic and business conditions

* Business practice and development

* Fiscal and regulatory frameworks

* Banking and financial structures

* Establishing a business

* Developing trading links

* Business and industrial sectors

With contributions from leading international and Omani business practitioners. Doing Business in Oman is a unique resource for any company keen to explore business opportunities in this important market.
