Abstract:The Gulf region and the Southern African region are facing many similar challenges, even though their respective incomes are very skewed. Their current links are already prolific but shared problems may have helped to multiply these. Their economies are both highly dependent: that of SADC on mining and agriculture; that of the Gulf on oil. Strong diversification is required in both regions. Diversification programmes offer plenty of opportunities to both regions in their efforts to expand existing trade. There are also many potential opportunities for cooperation in areas as diverse as education, banking, insurance, construction, and privatization. [ASC Leiden abstract]
