    Preface

    This study was prepared by Oleh Havrylyshyn, who is currently with the Policy Development and Review Department of the IMF. This paper was written while he was a consultant in the Middle Eastern Department from June to August 1996. He is grateful for the support received from and the valuable suggestions offered by members of the Middle Eastern Department, in particular, Paul Chabrier, Mohamed El-Erian, Edouard Maciejewski, Henri Ghesquiere, Klaus Enders, and Peter Kunzel. Development of ideas contained herewith benefited greatly from discussions with numerous individuals of the European Commission and of the governments of Morocco and Tunisia. Susan Lewis and Maria-Elena Ureta were of great help in the final preparation of this paper’s manuscript. Marina Primorac edited the paper and coordinated the production process. Alicia Etchebarne-Bourdin was responsible for composition. The views expressed are those of the author and do not necessarily represent those of the International Monetary Fund or any of the affiliated institutions.
