Muscat: The Sultanate ranked fourth in the Arab world and 64 globally in the World Human Capital Index 2020 issued by the World Bank.

The index published by the World bank on its website showed that most countries have made steady progress in building human capital for children in the pre-Covid-19 pandemic, with the largest strides being made in low-income countries.

The index indicated that due to the impact of the epidemic, most children – more than a billion children – were out of school and could lose, on average, half a year of schooling, which leads to significant financial losses.

World Bank Group President David Malpass said: “The pandemic is putting at risk the decade-long progress in building human capital, including improvements in health, survival rates and school enrollment.
