Oman ranks 26th in economic freedom


18 th Sept. 2013


Oman has been ranked the 26th most economically free country in the world, according to the 2013 Economic Freedom of the World Report, released yesterday by the Fraser Institute, Canada's leading public policy think-tank. The report reveals that the Sultanate has made considerable improvements in the Sound Money and Freedom to Trade Internationally Indexes as it becomes more competitive in global markets and offers attractive incentives to investors. It further highlights Oman's efforts to reduce bureaucracy, bypassing outdated regulations and safeguarding property rights while aggressively promoting international trade and investment. The annual Economic Freedom of the World Report is the most objective and accurate measure of economic freedom published by any organisation, using 42 distinct variables to make an index ranking countries around the world based on policies that encourage economic freedom.


Hong Kong and Singapore retain the top two positions in the 2013 Economic Freedom of the World Report, followed by New Zealand, Switzerland, Australia, Canada, Mauritius, Finland, the United Kingdom and Chile completing the top-10. "As more countries are surveyed each year and standards improve, Oman's ranking of 26th out of 152 countries clearly signals that the Sultanate is a leading business destination for investment and a country that is serious about improving its business environment and competitive appeal. In fact, research shows that people living in countries with high levels of economic freedom enjoy higher levels of prosperity, greater individual freedoms and longer life spans," remarked Dr Salem ben Nasser al Ismaily, Chairman, the Public Authority for Investment Promotion and Export Development (PAIPED).
