No summer break for MENA markets
Arabia Monitor Monthly
In this month's update, we provide our views on how:
- Saudi Arabia and the UAE are registering some of the highest levels of economic activity since the onset of the pandemic, presaging robust growth ahead.
- Iran's currency is undergoing heightened volatility on the back of political transitions and uncertainty surrounding the JCPOA.
- North Africa continues to exhibit political fragility, with Libya's interim government unable to enact reforms and Algeria's wildfires further exacerbating the socioeconomic crisis.
- The development of two major gas fields in Iraqi Kurdistan have been stalled by the new oil minister. The move is the latest in a series of shakeups to cement his position.
