Significant shifts in regional dynamics

Arabia Monitor Monthly

The MENA region is making headway in its post-COVID recovery, with several geopolitical breakthroughs paving the way for more economic opportunities. In this MENA monthly, we analyse these developments, including: 

  • The progress in negotiations in Vienna between Iran and the US regarding reviving the nuclear deal, with the prospect of reaching an agreement in the next 100 days becoming increasingly favourable.
  • The new wave of reforms sweeping over Oman, notably the sultanate’s bold decision to implement gradual fiscal consolidation to reduce the deficit and debt to sustainable levels.
  • Libya’s emergence from a decade of civil war and the renewed sense of optimism as the country reengages in international diplomacy.
