Topics in Middle Eastern andNorth African Economies
Market access matters. This paper uses a method suggested by Hugo et al. (2006) to determine and rank a sample of Arab countries in terms of their market access. The paper suggests that market access is comprised of three components: public institutions, regulatory environment, and network industries. The paper finds that most Arab countries perform better than the world median in terms of market access, except for Morocco and Algeria. The paper demonstrates how these two countries and other Arab countries can improve their market access, either by improving their network industries, their public institutions, or their regulatory environment.
