Oman

Oman's economy is heavily dependent on oil resources, but sustained high oil prices in recent years have helped build Oman's budget and trade surpluses and foreign reserves. Oman is actively pursuing a development plan that focuses on diversification, industrialization, and privatization, with the objective of reducing the oil sector's contribution to GDP to 9% by 2020. Industrial development plans focus on gas resources, metal manufacturing, petrochemicals, and international transshipment ports.
