Despite the availability of various agencies, Voice and Accountability index remained in the negative range, (-1.45 - 1.02), which had negative effects on economic growth Oman. In addition, the results indicate a clear weakness in rule of law indicator. However, there is a positive relation between Regulatory Quality and economic growth, which indicates that the government's efforts regarding this indicator have begun to be useful. .
