Quarterly Statistical Bulletin September 2019 8:00:00 PMQuarterly Statistical Bulletin September 2019<p style="text-align:justify;">Omani economy, after expanding at a robust pace for two consecutive years, contracted in nominal terms during the first half of 2019. The nominal Gross Domestic Product (GDP) declined by 1.9 percent during the first half of 2019. The nominal contraction in the economy was driven by the non-hydrocarbon sector that declined by 3.4 percent mainly because of a drop in nominal GDP emanating from the non-petroleum industrial activities and services sector. On the other hand, the hydrocarbon sector grew in nominal terms by 2.1 percent during the first half of 2019 with nominal GDP emanating from crude oil and natural gas increasing by 1.5 percent and 5.6 percent, respectively. </p>QuarterlyBulletins
