role of the state in the economy in mena
Role of the State in the Economy in MENA
  • In most OECD countries the state plays a limited role in the economy outside the social sectors
  • In MENA the state plays a major role (except Lebanon and possibly Tunisia and Morocco) and even in many countries where there is a large private sector – this has developed as a result of state favors as ruling groups distribute favors among supporters.
  • The state led economy brought many early positives to the region but inefficiency has made them a burden.
  • Apart from efficiency the state has focused on large capital intensive operations rather than the job creating small and medium enterprise with resulting high unemployment.
  • The challenges is reducing the role of the direct and indirect role of the state in the economy and let a more dynamic private sector develop and create jobs.
types of economies in mena
Types of Economies in MENA

      • Iran, Morocco, Tunisia, Jordan, Lebanon, Oman, Bahrain, UAE,

Qatar, and Kuwait
