MENA Economic Monitor

A New Economy for Middle East and North Africa

Countries in the Middle East and North Africa possess all the ingredients they need to leapfrog into the digital future. Their well-educated youth have already adopted new digital and mobile technologies, but, this is still in its infancy, and young people in MENA face obstacles in putting technology to productive use. The challenge now is to create the conditions for these green shoots to grow and multiply. The key is for MENA countries to become “learning societies,” which could lead to the creation of a vibrant digital service economy. Seizing the opportunities that the digital economy offers the MENA region will require a big push. Policymakers will need to work on multiple fronts, while making the best use of all available tools. The sooner they start, the greater the chance that today’s young people can overcome economic exclusion and gain more opportunities to realize their—and their region’s—full potential.
