THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC has expanded rapidly from a health emergency to an extraordinary shock to the global economy, with far reaching consequences for emerging markets like Oman. While authorities such as the Central Bank of Oman and Technological Innovation Committee have taken swift action to offset the negative effects, the prolonged state of alert and low oil environment require a solid response by the Sultanate's private sector.
