    The Middle Eastern and North African countries are at a crucial point in their reform process. In the past few years, several of them have taken steps to strengthen demand management, rationalize price structures, and liberalize exchange and trade regimes. Although these reforms have contained inflation and reduced external imbalances, challenges remain.

    This book brings together recent research by IMF staff on how the region’s countries are grappling with these challenges. It rigorously analyzes policy alternatives for a range of relevant topics—including the implications of changing demographic trends for growth and unemployment, determinants of inflation, financial-sector reform and Islamic banking, fiscal sustainabiliry in oil-dependent economies, exchange rate and trade arrangements, and impediments to foreign direct investment. The book’s overall theme is that self-sustaining and faster growth can be achieved through comprehensive structural reforms and closer collaboration between the region’s policymakers and the international community.
