    Om�n Econom�a 2000

      Econom�a - descripci�n: Oman's economic performance improved significantly in 1999 due largely to the mid-year upturn in oil prices.

Oman continues to liberalize its markets in an effort to accede to the World Trade Organization (WTrO) and is likely to gain membership in 2000.
