Arab Today, arab today CBO: Oman’s outlook good despite risks

Muscat - Arabstoday

Oman’s economy seems to have weathered the first quarter’s global slowdown quite well and its 2012 outlook remains positive despite external risks, a central bank (CBO) report showed. “The growth momentum witnessed in 2011 appears to have sustained in the first quarter of 2012 notwithstanding deteriorating global macroeconomic conditions, arising mainly due to (the) sovereign debt crisis in Europe,” said the 2011 annual report, seen yesterday. “The overall outlook for Oman remains positive in 2012 despite heightened downside risks to global recovery.” The report did not give a specific growth figure for the first quarter. Gross domestic product grew a real 5.5% in 2011, according to an International Monetary Fund estimate, after a 5.0% rise in 2010. However, Oman may be adversely affected if oil prices fall because of worsening global conditions, the central bank said. In addition, the private sector in the sultanate has yet to regain confidence fully, it said. “Profits earned by the private sector continue to remain sluggish. This is holding back private investment in Oman despite large government expenditure.” Oman, which gets about three-quarters of its government revenue from crude oil exports, faced strikes in the oil sector in May and June. The price of Brent crude plunged $40 to as low as $88 per barrel between March and June but has since recovered to around $98. from gulf times.
