programs, convey a few results on smaller exporters. despite the fact that, simply because those agencies are marginal in alternate, such
programs can't be video game changers. extra largely, the luck of MENA nations in selling export
growth and diversification, in addition to producing jobs, relies seriously on their skill to create an
environment the place huge organisations can make investments and extend exports and new, effective companies can upward thrust to the top.
