Oman aims to provide employement to locals
It may be mentioned that Oman is aiming to provide employment to local people instead of hiring expatriates.
Not only Oman but most of the developed countries of Middle East are exploring possibilities to increase locals in government and private sectors.
This trend can also be seen in US where Donald Trump administration is working on the slogan, “America First”.
However, there are countries such as Canada, New Zealand and others that still welcome expats with skills.
