Meanwhile, oil and gas earnings, which make up 94 percent of total exports and 60 percent of the state budget, declined to USD18.8bn in the cited period.

The country, an OPEC member aims to cut spending by 14 percent in the coming year, after a 9 percent cut this year to counter the impact of the oil price slide.
