Oman: Mystery continues over budget numbers

Given an unusual delay in the delivery of official figures, economists are struggling to work out how Oman fared in 2018 and what the impact was on the government’s finances. At this point in the year, official data for the preceding year would normally have been released, but the 2018 figures were not given to the International Monetary Fund during the IMF’s annual Article IV visit in late March/early April. Nor have they been published since by the Ministry of Finance or the National Centre for Statistics and Information.
