Although we are currently experiencing a new global environment of higher economic, geopolitical and trade uncertainties, such uncertainties are not new for all economies. Major oil exporters, in particular those in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, have been exposed to these uncertainties for many decades. The experience of resource-rich economies over the last four decades makes it clear that without good institutions and macroeconomic policies the new global order of higher uncertainties, will lead to disappointing economic outcomes in emerging as well as advanced economies.

A recording of this session is now available to watch on YouTube.
