    BMI View: The overall outlook for the non-life sector remains positive. A gradual rise in the rate of real GDP growth over our forecast period should boost incomes and feed into stronger demand for key non-life lines, including motor, property and health insurance, in what is still a market that is very far from saturated, despite being much more developed than the life sector. On a ten year view, our outlook envisages a moderate to modest trajectory for the Omani life in......
