Acknowledgments

The Middle East and Central Asia Regional Economic Outlook (REO) Update is prepared each spring by the IMF’s Middle East and Central Asia Department (MCD). The analysis and projections contained in the REO are integral elements of the Department’s surveillance of economic developments and policies in member countries. It draws primarily on information gathered by MCD staff through their consultations with member countries.

The analysis in this report was coordinated under the general supervision of Jihad Azour (Director of MCD). The project was directed by Taline Koranchelian (Deputy Director in MCD), Bikas Joshi (Chief of MCD’s Regional Analytics and Strategy Division), and Ali Al-Eyd (Deputy Chief of MCD’s Regional Analytics and Strategy Division). The primary contributors to this report were Maximiliano Appendino, Dalmacio F. Benicio, Nicolas End, Gazi H. Shbaikat, Moussé Sow, and Ling Zhu.

Gohar Abajyan, Oluremi Akin-Olugbade, and Kate Nguyen managed the database and provided research assistance, with additional assistance from Tucker Stone. Administrative support was provided by Tatiana Pecherkina and Patricia Poggi. Cheryl Toksoz of the Communications Department provided editorial assistance. Maria Atamanchuk, Imen Benmohamed, Tannous Kass-Hanna, Alexei Kireyev, Jean Frederic Noah Ndela Ntsama, Moussé Sow, Hamid Reza Tabarraei and Mohammed Zaher reviewed the translation, in coordination with Yelena Eydinova.
