"Subject areas covered include detailed analyses of the pattern and composition of trade (exports and imports), trends in and determinants of agricultural and intra-industry trade, the economic implications of free trade with the EU (a major focus of policy initiative being taken by southern Mediterranean countries), microeconomic reform priorities required to promote growth of exports, and options to deepen and widen regional integration agreements and enhance participation in the WTO in order to defend access to export markets and support domestic reform efforts." "Catching Up with the Competition will be of interest to international economists who focus on the countries of the Middle East and North Africa, as well as scholars with an interest in development economics and international relations."--BOOK JACKET."
