Omani law governing agency relationships contains provisions which are favourable to local agents and which may lead to unexpected results for uninformed foreign companies.

Law Office of Howard L. Stovall | What's New
The United Arab Emirates – despite its general reputation for free trade and limited government regulation of business – traditionally has had the most onerous ‘dealer protection’ law in the Arab Middle East. In the past year, however, pro-competition (or anti-monopoly) sentiment within certain UAE government circles resulted in enactment of a new federal law and two Ministry of Commerce resolutions that collectively reflect a weakening of those ‘dealer protections’.
