Hehe I just posted one a few mins before you in the Qatar forum .
Well I was just making an observation as per the higher GDP of these countries but yet unemployment, poverty etc that is still present and has grown over the years!Bahraini Spirit said:There is unemployment everywhere and the gulf states are combating that. I don't know about the other arab states, but the gulf is movin ahead very rapidly (one of the fastest in the world). I won't go on about what's bein done, but competitiveness is directly related to unemployment, the more competitive, the less unemployment, and Saudi Arabia ranks 7th out of 12 Arab countries so it has a lot of work to do. The report never mentioned that there is no unemployment in the arab states so I don't know why your question was asked in the first place.

I thinik the gulfians need to diversify more!!!
Excuse my ignorance but R&D means?Marshal said:Hope it changes everything for good!!
Arabs need to invest more in R&D!
Bahraini Spirit said:Research and Development. I can tell you more universities and educational facilities are being built. You need to wait, as I told you, 10 years and you'll see, and am talkin about the gulf here and not the whole arab world, some countries are way behind and I don't think they'll change for a long time.
Honestly, yes the world refers to arabs as a whole, but the gulf is honestly the future of the arab world and should be classified on it's own, and that's the case now.
