COVID-19 Response Measures in the MENA Region

Advocacy FMI Series No. 1

  1. Sviatoslav Rosov, PhD, CFA

An analysis of policy responses (fiscal, monetary, macroprudential) measures taken by Middle Eastern governments in response to COVID-19.

The MENA region is broadly in line with other global emerging economies in the size of its fiscal response, with the GCC subregion having a somewhat larger average fiscal response. Bahrain and Qatar are noticeable outliers even among the GCC countries in the large size of their fiscal response.
