Live Discussion on the Untapped Potential for Economic Integration in the Levant

  • Join us for a lively discussion from the Regional Conference on Economic Integration in Beirut on the findings and recommendations of the World Bank study “Over the Horizon: A New Levant.”

    Representatives from the private sector in the Levant will discuss the potentials for and barriers to deeper regional integration in goods and services trade. Key questions that will be addressed: Where are the untapped potentials for regional integration, and in which sectors? How can Levant economies benefit from complementarities and competitiveness through regional trade integration? What are the behind-the-border barriers? And what are the suggested policies/actions to remove these barriers in the short and long-term?

    Participating in the discussion will be ministers of trade and economy, governors of central banks, representatives of chambers from Egypt, Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, and the Palestinian Territories as well as entrepreneurs, think tanks, and academics.
