The ILO in Oman

The Sultanate of Oman has been a member state of the ILO since 1994, all of which are one of the eight fundamental conventions. In 2010, Oman enacted its Decent Work Country Programme (DWCP), the ILO's main three-year vehicle for delivery of support to countries. The DWCP was extended in 2014 for a further two years and focused on Omanisation of the workforce, social dialogue, labour administration, International Labour Standards; and social protection.
