The Report: Oman 2023
OBG
plus

Due to the hydrocarbons-focused nature of its economy, Oman was not immune to the global shocks of the past decade. The government is therefore pursuing economic diversification, with specific sectors being strategically targeted for development. The authorities have also rolled out a number of new laws in recent years to create a more accommodating legislative environment for investors, and have focused on privatising government-owned enterprises, creating special economic zones and strengthening local representation in the workforce.


The Report: Kuwait 2022
OBG
plus

The economy of Kuwait has long been underpinned by the production and export of crude oil. Although the rise in energy prices in 2021-22 boosted government revenue and macroeconomic stability, the Covid-19 pandemic, which preceded the commodity price boom, underscored the risk of over-reliance on an industry subject to fluctuating global demand.


The Report: Saudi Arabia 2022
OBG
plus

Saudi Arabia has undergone significant reforms to foster growth and diversification. While some initiatives were delayed during the Covid-19 pandemic, progress in areas such as the digital economy accelerated. Aided by elevated oil prices in 2022, strategies underlined in Vision 2030 continue moving forwards, and the Kingdom today presents ample opportunities for foreign investors, underpinned by efforts to boost private sector participation in the economy.


The Report: Cote d'Ivoire 2022
OBG
plus

After achieving a region-leading economic recovery in the decade since political stability was established, future growth and industrialisation strategy will continue to be shaped by the National Development Plan 2021-25, which constitutes a holistic approach to achieving emerging market status and meaningful poverty reduction by 2030.


The Report: Bahrain 2022
OBG
plus

After weathering a series of global and regional challenges in recent years, Bahrain is emerging from the Covid-19 pandemic with strong growth, rising government revenue and a new plan for the future economy. As energy and tourism earnings recover, the kingdom aims to generate sustainable long-term growth opportunities through new sector strategies and transformational infrastructure projects. These positive developments build on the country’s robust financial services and manufacturing sectors, which have helped make it one of the most diverse economies in the Gulf.
