Transforming Arab Economies: Traveling the Knowledge and Innovation Road (World Bank, 2013)

The report describes how engaging in a knowledge-economy model involves the implementation of a number of key cross-sectoral reforms that can create an incentivizing environment for innovation and growth.

Knowledge transfer is another important piece of the knowledge-economy model, essential in organizing, creating and disseminating knowledge, especially through foreign direct investments and international trade in goods and services.
