Al-Saqri, Said (2010) Petroleum resources, linkages and development: the case of Oman. PhD thesis, Victoria University.


After four decades of oil resource utilization, Oman is faced with the challenge of reducing its dependency on oil income and adjusting to becoming a non-oil economy within twenty years. The overall objective of this thesis is to contribute to the discussion of how this transformation can take place. The specific aims of the study are to examine: (1) linkages between oil resource extraction activities and economic development in Oman; (2) linkages between government expenditure and non-oil GDP growth; (3) economic efficiency and the changing dynamics of factor inputs and their contribution to GDP growth; and (4) the underlying issues associated with fiscal sustainability when oil income ceases.
