Prioritizing Productivity in the Gulf Region: A Path toward Sustained Growth through Smart Diversification

Economic growth in the Gulf region has been disappointing in recent years and has mostly been achieved through increases in employment, whereas labor productivity growth, measured as an increase in output per worker, has been negative across the board. A recovery of productivity in economies of the Gulf region could accelerate growth beyond the average growth performance of major emerging markets in the next decade. This requires a long-term, strategic focus on new and expanded activities based on the creation of qualitative growth sources, including innovation, digital transformation, and enhanced skills for workers.
