Deepening Arab region integration could raise development, UN reports
Inclusive economic integration in the Arab region could create six million new jobs by 2020 and increase regional gross domestic product by three per cent, the United Nations reported on 25 February.

The report Arab Integration: A 21st Century Development Imperative launched by the Economic and Social Commission of Western Asia (ESCWA), utilizes studies and economic models to compare potential growth if regional countries integrated. It also identifies strategies for promoting free trade in services, free movement in capital and workers, and the development of regional production chains.
