BMI View: The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) holds huge potential from a mining investment perspective. However, despite considerable mineral and metals resources, much of the region's mining infrastructure remains under-developed. In many cases this is due to political instability which has restricted foreign investment and mining activity from taking placed on a significant commercial scale. As global energy markets continue to underperform there is an increasing incentive for many MENA states to diversify their economies and to prioritise the development of their mining assets. This is particularly the case in Oman, Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states which remain heavily reliant on oil and gas revenues. Meanwhile, the lifting of sanctions against the Iranian economy is allowing the government to explore ways to harness its vast mineral wealth. In Iran, as in other countries, foreign investment will play a key role in supporting this development and increasing mineral and metals production, though political instability will remain at the forefront of investors' concerns in many cases.
