Achieving economic diversification and fiscal sustainability are two main priorities for Oman. Recently, the Government of Oman announced new strategic policies to boost long-term economic growth and development. The merging of the country's two sovereign wealth funds along with the Department of Investment at the Ministry of Finance into the newly formed Oman Investment Authority is expected to improve the overall investment landscape. At the same time, recently implemented regulatory reforms under the Foreign Capital Investment Law are expected to boost FDI inflows, especially in light of a more streamlined approval and regulatory processes. TBY gathers the relevant stakeholders to discuss what these changes mean for the country's future.
