Middle East and North Africa Investment Policy Perspectives
Middle East and North Africa Investment Policy Perspectives highlights the considerable
progress in investment policies made by the region’s governments over the past decade.
Yet, the reform momentum needs to be sustained and deepened for the benefits of investment
to be shared with society at large and for growth to be sustainable, particularly
in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting global economic upheaval. The
publication takes stock of investment policy trends and reforms in Algeria, Egypt,
Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, the Palestinian Authority, and Tunisia, and draws
out common challenges, offering suggestions of reform priorities. It considers several
dimensions of the policy framework that affect the investment climate and places strong
emphasis on how foreign investment can help economies of the region improve their
citizens’ lives. The publication serves as reference point, informing policymakers
on specific areas as they continue work on leveraging investment to advance inclusive
and sustainable growth.
