This policy briefing examines how regional entrepreneurship initiatives can help Arab countries achieve the [Sustainable Development Goal] SDG of inclusive growth and explores existing political, economic, and socio-cultural challenges such initiatives currently face. It argues that policy improvements - particularly when it comes to regulation, finance, education, 'intrapreneurship', and regional integration - must be implemented in order to both promote greater entrepreneurship and sustain an inclusive economic environment.
