Oman's Minister of Manpower has held a meeting with the country's Real Estate Association to discuss the implementation of a law boosting local employment in the sector.

The Sultanate's government expects that 80% of all real estate brokerage positions should be filled byu Omanis, with the remaining 20% held open for foreigners with experience "in certain real estate fields", according to the Oman News Agency.

Discussions with the industry are ongoing as to the level of experience required overseas for foreigners to work in the industry.

The chairman of Oman's Real Estate Association, Eng. Mohammed bin Salim al-Busaidi, said the organisation is ready to co-operate with the stakeholders to develop the real estate brokerage profession and implement the law.

New seminars are being organised to train Omani practitioners and new broker cards are being issued to qualified staff.
