Fiscal Balance in Oman

Oman Fiscal Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

Oman - Fiscal Balance

The economy likely rebounded in 2018 after a contraction in 2017, primarily on the back of increased hydrocarbon output and prices. Preliminary estimates show the fiscal deficit fell in absolute terms to a four-year low on the back of higher government revenue, despite greater expenditure. Moreover, international reserves climbed, while exports rose by over a third in January–September. Turning to 2019, Moody’s said in February that the fiscal deficit is unlikely to improve much more due to lacking policy action from the government. Meanwhile, a large sebacic acid factory began production in the city of Duqm in the same month, highlighting government economic diversification efforts.
