The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is a diverse region, affected by economic and political transformations, but with a potential for more and better growth. It benefits from a privileged geographic location with access to large markets; a young and increasingly educated population; and comparative advantages in several sectors such as manufacturing, renewable energies and tourism.

MENA economies are implementing reforms to improve economic growth, governance structures, diversification, employment, private sector development and integrity. The MENA-OECD Initiative on Governance and Competitiveness for Development, initiated and led by the region, supports these reforms through an inclusive and co-ordinated approach, innovative policy dialogue, links between key stakeholders, peer learning and capacity building.

The MENA-OECD Initiative covers Algeria, Bahrain, Djibouti, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestinian Authority, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.
