November 11, 2012 -- IMF Survey: Middle East Economies Post Divergent Performance

April 16, 2012 -- IMF Survey: Libya on Recovery Path but Faces Long Rebuilding Effort
Libyan oil production has recovered faster than expected following the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi, but the country has to build modern institutions, repair infrastructure, and diversify the economy, an IMF official says, adding that its potential could be realized with the right institutions and policies.
October 26, 2011 -- IMF Survey: Mideast Outlook Varies Markedly Across Region
Countries across the Middle East and North Africa face a diverging economic outlook, with oil exporters experiencing a pickup in growth in 2011 on the back of higher oil prices and oil importers seeing a dramatic downturn as the region faces heightened regional and global uncertainty, the IMF says.

Group of Seven industrial nations, plus Russia, bolstered their support for Middle East and North African countries under the Deauville Partnership, an initiative launched at a leaders’ summit last May, and welcomed moves by international financial institutions to improve coordination.
