November 17, 2014 -- IMF Survey : More Efficient Public Investment a Mideast, Central Asia Priority

May 06, 2014 -- IMF Survey : Mideast Growth Outlook to Improve Overall, Bold Reforms Still Needed
Economic growth in the Middle East, North Africa, Afghanistan, and Pakistan (MENAP) is expected to strengthen this year, but weak confidence and, in some cases, large public deficits continue to pose risks to this outlook, the IMF said in its latest regional assessment.
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

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.
April 27, 2011 -- IMF Survey: Mideast Countries See Opportunity Amid Unrest
Recent uprisings in the Middle East provide an opportunity for the region to lay the foundation for a socially inclusive growth agenda, but in the near term, oil-importing countries face multiple pressures stemming from higher crude prices and disruptions to economic activity, the IMF says.
