Linking MENA is being designed to complement current initiatives of the MENA-OECD Investment Programme, including the work of the MENA Centre for Investment, the Institute for Corporate Governance, the MENA-OECD Enterprise Financing Network and the MENA-OECD Business Network; and to provide a framework for new initiatives.
The programme will bring the essential knowledge and linkages together to stimulate business. This will help build skills through trade and technology transfer and will allow business opportunities at all levels of commerce to be presented in the most effective manner.
Linking MENA will have positive impacts on Middle East and North African economies where it can be adopted in the following ways:
- Assist entrepreneurs focus of business opportunities by providing knowledge to develop enterprises across many industry sectors
- Increase the numbers of new enterprises and the diversity of the private sector
- Assist job creation by providing more knowledgeable and capable human capital
- By providing governments the informational infrastructure tools to attract and sustain investment and increase domestic and foreign trade in a virtuous cycle. More entrepreneurs, more enterprises, more jobs meaning a stronger private sector
