The bonanza days of the 1980s are over, but the oil-rich sultanate continues to be a rewarding, if challenging, market. Oil remains a focus of investment, and the government is planning to diversify into natural gas exports; investment is also being sought in infrastructure, including Oman's first private power station. The author, a journalist writing from Oman, discusses the rules under which international-local joint ventures operate, the physical and other hardships that can affect project work and expatriate staff, and the government's policy of increasing the employment of Omani nationals while reducing the number of foreign workers.
