Abstract

This paper examines the dynamics of trade specialization in the MENA region and countries for the period 2000 and 2010. An econometric model, Wald test, and the Spearman’s rank correlation are applied. By both, industry and country group classifications analysis, all countries in the MENA region have shown de-specialization with different speed, where Qatar has the fastest speed and Tunisia has slowest speed.
