ABSTRACT
The article discusses the growth of the oil and petrochemical industries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Energy experts at the International Monetary Fund and World Bank meeting in Singapore predicted shifting trade and investment flows in the MENA, fueled by soaring energy demand from China and India. Expectations of robust demand from key emerging markets in Asia are likely to fuel a slew of investments from oil producers in MENA.
