Africa and the Arab Gulf: A New Economic and Political Alliance?

Yaw Nyarko and Silvana Melitsko

Journal of African Development, 2010, vol. 12, issue 1, 10-19

Abstract: Does the relationship between the Arab Gulf and Africa hold the promise of greatly enhanced and mutually beneficial trade and investment? Can increased collaboration between the two regions increase the economic and political power and influence of each? Are there lessons to be learned from the comparative development of the two regions? This paper and the papers in this volume will present the case that in many instances the answers to the above questions are in the affirmative.
