  • Egypt: With the decision to not ask for further funding from the IMF, what key indicator should be watched going into 2019?
  • Tunisia: Why is the battle between Prime Minister Chahed and President Essebsi escalating, and why could the PM face some pressure from his Ennahda ally?
  • Iraq: What are the main challenges facing full Cabinet formation in Iraq? And what obstacles do the 2019 budget discussions face?
  • Sino-MENA: What does 2019 have in store for the MENA-China energy relationship?
