The International Monetary Fund has a new blog up and running in Arabic. The Fund says this about it:

The first post is by Masood Ahmed, head of the IMF’s Middle East and Central Asia Department, on how to build on the optimism of the Arab Spring and create a more vibrant economy in the region. The Middle East and North Africa has many strengths on which to build: a dynamic and young population, vast natural resources, a large regional market, and an advantageous geographic position with access to important markets. The blog hopes to encourage debate and offer analysis and potential solutions on economic issues, while providing Arabic commentaries on global topics.

The new outreach comes as Egypt mulls the possibility of accepting IMF funds to close its budget gap.
