MENA: Off to a Positive Start in 2019

Highlights include:

  • How will the inclusion of GCC bonds in the JPMorgan EMBI index affect the region’s debt markets?
  • We believe Saudi Arabia’s GDP growth will exceed the projections of the IMF (which has issued a downward revision). Why?
  • Who are the main contenders for the April elections in Algeria so far? What factors could foster further political instability in the country?
  • How significant will the issuance of green bonds be for Egypt and how will they compare to other issuers like Poland, France, Fiji and Nigeria?
  • Who were the biggest winners and losers from the government formation in Lebanon? How pressing is Lebanon’s financial challenge? What is the likelihood of debt restructuring in 2019?
  • What kind of projects is China developing in Algeria? Is Algeria receiving Chinese investments given its localisation initiatives?
