Muscat: Dr. Mahad Said Ba’Owain, Minister of Labour, has issued a ministerial decision Omanizing (nationalizing) jobs at private higher education institutions. The aim is to replace expatriate manpower with Omani job seekers capable of performing the jobs.

Al-Hosni added that the Ministry, acting in cooperation with production partners, is researching and studying labour market conditions in order to find approved solutions aimed to enhance investment and empower national manpower.

He explained that this decision came in coordination with the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, as well as liaison committees of private higher education institutions. The decision applies to all 28 higher education institutions in the Sultanate, he added.
