The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) accounts for a large share of the world’s petroleum production and exports. But despite the region’s natural wealth, years of conflict and turmoil have triggered many political and economic challenges: from the Arab Spring to civil wars in Syria, Iraq, Libya and Yemen; from the fragile economies of Jordan, Lebanon, and Tunisia to the COVID-19 pandemic. So, is there hope for the economies in the region? And how can they find a way forward? We speak to Ferid Belhaj, the World Bank vice president for the MENA region. - - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: https://www.aljazeera.com/
