One of the key sectors identified by the government as part of its economic diversification drive is manufacturing. Moves to open industrial cities to greater private ownership, along with growing investment in SEZs, are already having a significant impact. Chemical and refined petrochemical products comprise a significant portion of Oman's industrial output, and their contribution to GDP steadily increases.
