FDI Promotion policies and dynamic of growth in the South East Mediterranean countries (In French)

  • Marouane ALAYA (GREThA-GRES)
  • Dalila NICET-CHENAF (GREThA-GRES)
  • Eric ROUGIER (GREThA-GRES)

In this paper, we ask if the convergence in policies leads to a convergence in growth dynamics for MENA countries. We first show that FDI promotion policies have been very similar in the South East Mediterranean countries during the last decade. Then, we try to find clubs of convergence in this area through KPSS and ADF models, and show the difficulty of observing such clubs among Mediterranean countries.
