The Arab World Competitiveness Report 2005


The Arab World Competitiveness Report 2005 by Augusto Lopez-Claros

Through in-depth analysis of regional trends and detailed country profiles, The Arab World Competitiveness Report 2005 assesses the comparative strengths and weaknesses of Arab countries. The report highlights the prospects for growth in the region and, more importantly, the obstacles to improving competitiveness in the region. It contains essays from prominent academics and development experts on a variety of issues relevant to the Arab world's development agenda. The report is an indispensable tool for business leaders and investment decision-makers; it is also extensively used as a benchmarking instrument for policy-makers to improve the framework conditions for policy formulation, with a view to improving a country's growth performance.


'In recent years, the delicate political climate in the Middle East has often overshadowed critical discussions related to economic and social development in the Arab world. [The Arab World Competitiveness Report] focuses on the challenges facing these countries in improving their competitiveness at a particularly critical time.' - Professor Klaus Schwab'
