India has the highest number of expat women employed in Oman's government sector
DUBAI: Indian women have topped the list of number of expatriate females working in the government sector in Oman, according to an official data. According to the 2020 Statistical Yearbook data from National Centre for Statistics and Information (NCSI) Oman, the number of Indian women employed in the government sector topped the list with 4,604 followed by 3,090 Egyptian women for the year 2019, the Gulf News reported.
According to the data, Indian women comprised 37 per cent of the total Indian workforce employed in the government sector in 2019.
Even though the numbers may seem miniscule in comparison to the total number of Omani women employed in the government sector, which is 83,175, it carries weight in the context of expatriates working in government offices, the daily said.
Sudanese women were third on this list, and non-Omani Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) women were the fewest, , with only 36 employed in the public sector in Oman.
Nationalities that figure in the list of workforce in the government sector apart from Omanis are Indians, Bangladeshis, Pakistanis, Egyptians, Sudanese, Jordanians, other Arabs, GCC and other nationalities.
