Purchasing Power Parities and the Real Size of Arab Economies

December 2020
A Comprehensive Regional Report Covering PPP Results for the Years 2011 to 2019

This report provides indicators and comparative analysis of the real sizes of 12 Arab economies that participated in ICP under ESCWA leadership, namely Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the State of Palestine, the Sudan and the United Arab Emirates. The commitment of this group of countries has enabled ESCWA to succeed in developing a fully integrated price statistics programme, under the framework of which ICP is consolidated with regular work on the consumer price index to produce PPPs on an annual basis and develop other harmonized price indices.
