During the last decade, Gulf investors have become a major player in the Mediterranean,sometimes surpassing Europe. Since the inception of the ANIMA observatory (January 2003),they have invested some 70 bn Euro in almost 700 projects (a ratio close to €100m perproject, a rather big ticket), mostly in Mashreq and in Maghreb. They had announced evenmore (€160 bn), but this was partly communication and, of course, the crisis has reducedsome ambitions.
