Oman’s education sector currently contributes 4.9% to the GDP which is expected to increase to 6.2% by the end of the tenth Five-Year Plan (2021-2025). The government is actively encouraging private sector investment in Oman’s education system and has put in place a regulatory legal framework that safeguards the interests of both international and domestic investors. Investor interest in private primary, secondary and higher education has been strong, primarily owing to the availability of infrastructure, land and financial support offered by government as well as demand from a growing and aspirational middle class.
