Location: The Sultanate of Oman, formerly Muscat & Oman, occupies the south-eastern part of the Arabian Peninsula. Oman adopted the present name in 1970.

Natural Resources: Oil is the major source of income. It forms 95% of the exports. Where there is water, the land is very fertile. The Batina coastal plain is famous for its dates, fruits and grains. Major industries are petroleum drilling, fishing and construction.

The sultanate has spent its oil resources frugally and made careful use of its natural advantages, such as its prime position astride important trade routes. The giant container port and free zone it has built at Salalah looks set to capture a growing share of the Indian Ocean transshipment business.

The British gave the Kuria Muria Islands, formerly part of Aden, to Oman in 1967.
