Abstract

Economic integration is crucial in order to achieve rapid and sustainable growth. However, instabilities in the MENA region and the recent plunge in oil prices may stifle the economic progress in some of these countries, and threaten their attempts at integration. Within this context, this note seeks to analyze the efforts of integration that MENA countries have undertaken, particularly through trade agreements; and to articulate some principles that can help guide the ongoing search for long-term solutions to the region’s growth and integration issue.
