Egypt and MENA: In Search of Economic Direction

Chatham House, London

Participants

David Butter, Associate Fellow, Middle East and North Africa Programme, Chatham House
Majid Jafar, CEO, Crescent Petroleum

Overview

The speakers will examine the current situation in Egypt and the MENA region and assess both the economic consequences of political developments in Egypt and prospects for stability in the wider region. Majid Jafar will also argue the initial drivers of the Arab Spring - lack of opportunity, youth unemployment and government budget deficits - have not been resolved, and will focus on the long-term solutions needed to address these concerns.
