In its newest local financial upgrade released last month, the IMF modified its GDP development projection for the Middle East and North Africa area downwards to 2.9% this year, due in part to short-term oil production cuts.

” While unpredictabilities are still high, we can be a bit more positive about the financial outlook, since the worldwide economy has actually been remarkably durable,” she stated in the speech.
