Export diversification is a formidable task, demanding vision, commitment, coordination, and adaptability. It is a pursuit that necessitates learning from successful practices and avoiding common pitfalls. The member states of the GCC, BRICS, and BRI have demonstrated their willingness and ability to undertake this endeavour, reaping the rewards of shared experiences and synergies. Together, they contribute to a balanced and prosperous global landscape. As the world hurtles through rapid transformations, economic growth and prosperity find new sources. For countries reliant on natural resources or low-cost manufacturing, the undeniable need to diversify their economies becomes evident. Diversification offers the promise of reduced vulnerability to external shocks, increased job opportunities, and an environment conducive to innovation and productivity.
