Supporting MENA economies in their reform efforts
The MENA Initiative is bringing economies from the region closer to the OECD by deepening the dialogue with the Organisation and supporting MENA reform agendas.
MENA economies have intensified their participation in OECD bodies and their adherence to legal instruments. They have integrated a number of statistical reporting and information systems, benchmarking exercises, and they have continued to participate in OECD Global Foruma publications and policy reviews.
The OECD’s activities with the MENA region involve 19 economies: Algeria, Bahrain, Djibouti, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestinian Authority, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.
Additionally, the OECD provides country-specific support for Morocco through the Morocco Country Programme, which aims to support the country in advancing its reform agenda in three strategic areas: competitiveness, public governance and social inclusion.
