520    China and India's spectacular economic rise over the last 
       two decades has accelerated their trade and investment 
       flows with the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), 
       particularly with the oil-producing countries. And while 
       these flows are still small, China and India's presence in
       the region is on the rise. This report focuses on the 
       following questions:what have been evolution and the 
       impact of MENA's trade and investment relations with China
       and India? what actions can be taken to maximize the 
       benefits from these relations and to enhance MENA's 
       international integration? The main findings indicate that
       the region as a whole has benefited from the rise of China
       and India in terms of better terms of trade, significant 
       increases in oil and gas exports, and cheaper imports. 
       However, producers of industrial goods have been 
       negatively-and in a few cases severely-affected by 
       competition with the two Asian countries in both third and
       domestic markets. While China and India are investing more
       in MENA, they are contributing very little to job creation
       or to the transfer and diffusion of technology. Faster 
       growth in the two Asian countries-and the associated 
       higher demand for energy-will increase revenues from oil 
       and the difficult choices associated with their 
       management. For the labor-abundant, non oil-producing 
       countries, competition with China and India will increase.
       But the lack of competitive manufacturing industries and 
       services, the insufficient attention given in the past to 
       building technological capabilities and promoting openness
       and entrepreneurship are constraining their ability to 
       respond to competition. They need to accelerate 
       productivity to tackle unemployment, especially among 
       youth. This may require the broader institutional changes 
       seen in China and India-suggesting the importance of a 
       pragmatic reform agenda that can accelerate 
520 8  productivity, trade, and investment in the region
