Oman's draft regulations on Sukuk ready.
The proposed framework is to be posted on the CMA website (http://www.cma.gov.om) for public consultation. Khalid Yousaf, Director - Islamic Finance Advisory Services, KPMG Oman, told the newspaper that he expected the Omani Government itself would issue Sukuk, noting that, "Government and quasi-government institutions take the lead in Sukuk financing. Out of total Sukuk outstanding of $103 billion, $65 billion has been issued by Government institutions... With a commitment to $30 billion in infrastructure projects already, the government of Oman is very likely to issue Sukuk to finance some if not all of their projects in future."
