Hiba Husseini on Secured Transactions Regimes in Emerging Arab Market Economies (PDF)
Access to credit is one limitation on growth in Arab economies. Secured transactions laws leave borrowers unable to leverage while lenders struggle to manage uncertainty created by outdated laws. Reform can reduce lender risk and increase credit. With an open regime eliminating barriers, setting clear priority rules, maintaining public registries and enforcing security agreements, Arab economies can access to credit in their own economies.
