Stock Market on 15-Year High as MENA Economically Rebounds in 2022

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates-Tuesday 15 March 2022 [ AETOS Wire ]

As the largest MENA economy bounced back in 2021 according to the International Monetary Fund, by Q3 the region saw a 6.8% growth far outperforming the 2.3% projection for the year. Driven by low unemployment rates and an uptick in oil demand and growth in non-oil sectors, this rebound is set to continue into 2022.

Oil revenues accelerated the rebound in 2021 with oil exporters seeing a 5% rise in real GDP according to a report from IHS Markit.

The announcement of new laws would bring even more transparency, preventing harmful tax practices to keep a balance of competitive tax rate globally and will intertwine with the new OECD tax agreement to earn income on business conducted domestically.
