DUBAI, 31th October, 2017 (WAM) -- The International monetary Fund's Fall 2017 Regional Economic Outlook, REO, for the Middle East, North Africa, Afghanistan and Pakistan (MENAP), was launched today at the Dubai International Financial Centre, DIFC.

The semi-annual Regional Economic Outlook report details trends and developments across the MENAP region and the Caucasus and Central Asia (CCA). The report’s sectoral indicators are widely used as a benchmark for future economic projections and set the tone for growth, trade and investment.

The IMF’s report found that despite the strengthening global recovery, MENAP’s growth outlook remains relatively subdued, although there are some important differences across oil exporting and importing countries.

In MENAP oil-exporters, non-oil growth is expected to recover to about 2.6 percent in 2017 as fiscal consolidation generally slows. However, the agreed reduction in oil output under the extended OPEC-led agreement means overall growth will bottom out at 1.7 percent in 2017.

Growth in oil importers, on the other hand, is expected to rise to 4.3 percent this year, supported by the strengthening domestic demand and the recovery of the global economy.

Arif Amiri, Chief Executive Officer of DIFC Authority said, "Long-standing strategic collaborations, such as the one we have with the IMF, symbolise DIFC’s commitment to driving sustainable development across the region’s economies. The report highlights the growing need for structural reform in the region, which reaffirms the importance of quickly adapting to an innovative financial future.

On the subject of change and adaptation, the MEASA region is undergoing tremendous transformations and is poised to shape the future of finance and financial innovation. The combination of technology, innovation and smart policy making must be embraced by the financial sector across emerging and developing economies.

By providing an established platform for firms to tap into transformational opportunities throughout MEASA, the DIFC is ever more committed to the advancement of the region’s financial infrastructure."

Jihad Azour, Director of the IMF’s Middle East and Central Asia Department, outlined key findings from the report, stressing that countries should seize the global upswing to implement needed structural reforms. Improving the business environment, increasing access to credit and modernising labour markets will help boost growth and create private sector jobs. This will be critical with millions of new jobseekers expected over the coming years".
