Oman’s economy witnessed remarkable improvement in 2017 in a variety of sectors, as it registered growth of 8.7% at current prices after two successive years of recession, ONA reported.

This comprehensive improvement in the economic sector is due to the recovery of oil prices and the positive effect of the nation’s economic diversification.
