IMF Study analyses Arab Countries in Transition

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has released a study entitled “Toward New Horizons—Arab Economic Transformation Amid Political Transitions,” which highlights the urgency of pursuing bold economic policy reforms to achieve economic stability and generate job-creating growth in the region. The study examines the economies of Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Yemen, Tunisia, and Libya and concludes that the near-term economic outlook continues to be challenging and that the priority for the coming year is maintaining economic stability.
