Egypt left behind
The GCC countries are forming a single market by 2007, removing all trade barriers, creating a common market with a unified trade policy. We- who should be doing that and wanting to join them- won't be seeing anything closely similar anytime soon, because the government loves our tarriff and custom duties money, and it would require them to get rid of all of their senseless and bureaucratic laws that make investers run-away from actually seriously investing in Egypt. We, who were leading this region at some point, are going to end up trailing everybody else. Fantastic!
