Oman - Current Account

A long-awaited data release in August revealed economic growth rebounded in 2018 after nearly grinding to a halt in 2017. The improvement was driven by a recovery in oil activity, albeit a modest one, given the ongoing OPEC+ agreement to restrict oil production. This contributed to a surge in exports, resulting in the current account deficit narrowing by nearly two-thirds. Turning to 2019, the economy appears to have had a mixed year so far. On the one hand, the non-oil economy looks in good shape, with inflation averaging below half a percent in January–July, which should have supported private spending, while bank lending rose at a healthy pace in January–June compared to the same period last year, hinting at robust fixed investment growth. On the other hand, oil production was steady in January–June in annual terms.
