Oman's political challenges are primarily around succession plans. The democratic institutions and processes are still in early development and have not experienced real power. There is some risk of destabilization by radicals backed by militant groups or other states.
Oman's Musandam peninsula is a strategic asset which may become contested in future. Strong military ties with the United Kingdom and the GCC countries helps maintain stability. The growing power of Iran is not considered a concern due to the friendly and historical ties between the two countries.
The demographic challenges are, like in other GCC countries, that a large proportion of the population are non-citizens.
The economic challenge is over-dependence on oil. While this is a benefit during oil price spikes, it is a risk during downturns.
