Support our research project, register yourself and purchase the report

According to the data released by the World Bank, in 2012 the total amount of migrants’ remittances was 529 billion dollars. Four hundred one billion went to developing countries, with a 5.3% increase compared to 2011. Middle East and North Africa (MENA region) registered a record growth of remittances in the world in 2012, with a remittance flow worth 49 billion dollars, an increase by 14.3% compared to the previous year. Egypt alone represents over 40% of the total of remittances that arrived in the MENA region and it witnessed a six fold increase of the worth of its remittances in the last 8 years, thus becoming the most important beneficiary of the area before Lebanon, Morocco, Jordan and Tunisia. In 2012 North-African migrants in Italy transferred about 314 million Euros to their families of origin, which equal 4.6% of the total of remittances coming from Italy. The value decreased from the one registered in 2011 (388 million Euros); the dynamic was highly influenced by the Italian economic crisis: income of African migrants in Italy shrank and so also the flow of their remittances.

Financial systems in the MENA regions: Tunisia and Morocco – 2014

Support our research project, register yourself and purchase the report

The MENA financial systems show a limited presence of financial intermediaries, a stock markets development not far from western standards and a level of bancarization, financialization and penetration of the banking system still limited but growing. Within the MENA zone, the Moroccan economic system is characterized by a limited presence of non‐bank financial intermediaries, but it seems to have a financial structure that is more developed and evolved than the average of the MENA zone in terms of stock markets development, levels of bancarization and financialization, and access to banking services. Otherwise, the financial structure of the Tunisian economic system appears a few developed in terms of number, size and degree of development of financial markets and intermediaries. However, the Tunisian financial system has shown a steady growth that will likely continue in the coming years.

Financial systems in the MENA Region and the role of Islamic banks in Turkey – 2012

The financial systems of these countries may actually play a fundamental role in developing the economies they pertain to and the Mediterranean economy as a whole. More specifically, the intention of the paper is to analyse the operational methods of the banking systems in the MENA region because they can have a decisive impact on the transfer of financial resources distributed to the economic units of this geographic area and, thus, on the potential development of the area itself.
