this Data set covers the statistical indicators illustrating the development of trade between Oman and other countries, and classification of merchandise exports, re-exports and merchandise imports by commodity group, nature of materials, their final utilization and port of entry. It includes also a table on of the balance of payments estimates.
The commodity classification used in the presentation of foreign trade data is the Hormonised System, which has been adopted in Oman since 1987, in addition to the SITC Revision (4) for international comparison. Commodity values are estimated in Rial Omani on the basis of the (C.I.F.) value for imports (i.e. the cost, insurance and freight of goods to the custom points in Oman) and (F.O.B.) for exports and re-exports.
