Arab Spring Economic Impact on MENA Countries Analyzed in New Study Published at MarketPublishers.com23 Jan 2012 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – The democratic uprisings and protests that arose independently and spread across the Arab World in 2011 increased existing tensions in the region's economies from the current global economic downturn, at the same time escalating the risks surrounding the economy, as political disturbances swept across many countries in the region, with unlooked-for consequences.
The most adversely affected economies were those that witnessed revolutions and conflicts like Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen, Syria, and Bahrain. The economies that did not see revolutions but were already experiencing difficulties, such as Jordan, Morocco, and Algeria, are expected to suffer from surged social unrests. Rich countries in the region with a relatively secure political environment are expected to witness increasing spending pressures on social programs.
New research study “The Arabian Spring and Its Impact on MENA Economies” designed by Ventures Middle East discusses the economic impact of the Arabian Spring on the countries of the Middle East and Northern Africa (MENA) region, as well as provides the regional economic outlook for 2012 and beyond.
