About the product
This annual publication reviews the progress made by Arab countries towards regional integration and their integration into the world economy. It provides an analysis of economic indicators which measure the performance of the Arab economies in achieving integration into the world economy, with an emphasis on foreign direct investment. It also gives an analysis of a set of other economic indicators which measure the performance of Arab countries in achieving regional integration. The review discusses, in a separate chapter, labour migration, as one of the regional integration indicators. It considers the status of labour movement in the Arab region and the workers’ remittances and their impact on the economies of their countries of origin. The review presents a set of recommendations on how to remove obstacles that hinder the Arab regional integration and the Arab economies’ integration into global economy.
