The International Monetary Fund in a recent report has said that private investment should be encouraged in the Middle East, North Africa, Afghanistan, and Pakistan.

The report titled How Can Policymakers Boost Private Investment in the Middle East, North Africa, Afghanistan, and Pakistan stated, that the economic risks are on the rise as millions of young people entering the workforce each year as a result fiscal resources are severely constrained in these countries.

To meet these challenges, bolstering the private sector and increasing private investment in the region is critical.

The IMF noted that the private sector investment has been historically low in these countries.
