The Iraqi economy will be the highest among the Arab countries, according to the latest World Bank report. The Iraqi economy is expected to grow at a rate of 6,000 and 19, with an average of 6 and 2 per cent.
Although Iraq has registered modest growth of 18,000 in one and nine-tenths of a percent, reconstruction projects this year will be an important driver for the growth of its economy and neighboring economies, being the highest Arab.
The Global Economic Outlook for the Middle East and North Africa, "Dark Sky", predicted that the region would see an increase in economic growth to one and nine tenths of a percent, with figures showing that growth in the GCC would rise to two and six tenths of a percent Supported by an active investment movement in oil exporting countries.
Egypt will also see growth rising to five and six-tenths of percent, boosted by investments and reforms in the expected business climate.
Morocco and Tunisia will grow to two and nine tenths of a percent, if tourist indicators improve and political reforms continue, according to the report's requirements.
While growth in Jordan is likely to slightly improve by two to three tenths of a percent, the bank expects Algeria's growth to fall to the same level, due to slower government spending than last year.
The World Bank has warned of the risks facing the region, which can discourage growth. Conflict can escalate and cause greater damage to income and economic activity, let alone health and social well-being.
