Analysts from UnaFnancial have calculated the value of fintech investment for the Gulf Coast Countries (GCC) in terms of the per-capita increase to GDP using Tracxn data.

In 2022, the United Arab Emirates was a regional leader, with $636.4 (1.01%) in GDP per capita coming from fintech. It was followed by Bahrain with $89 (0.24%) and Saudi Arabia with $75 (0.18%), highlighting the substantial gap between the UAE and its neighbors.

For the GCC region as a whole, the impact of fintech equaled $161 added to the GDP per citizen. Meanwhile, according to UnaFinancial’s forecast, the UAE will still have the highest value of fintech contribution to GDP per capita by 2030, equaling $915.6 (a 44%-increase over 2022). Saudi Arabia is expected to remain in second place but with a massive 650% increase to $561.5. For the GCC region as a whole, fintech will add $506.7 to the GDP per capita by 2030.

UnaFinancial’s analysts commented: “In terms of investment in fintech, the UAE makes up 62% of the entire GCC region. This is explained by the level of economic development of the country compared to other countries in the region. The GDP per capita for the population aged 15+ in the UAE equals $63,359, which is almost 4 times higher than the average in the GCC (excluding the UAE). Saudi Arabia and Bahrain are the countries with high average annual growth rates of fintech influence – 182.4%, which exceeds the region’s average by 1.5 times. Meanwhile, Kuwait, Oman, and Qatar are in a transition phase. The average growth rate of fintech influence on the well-being of their citizens equals 166.3% per year. Yet, there are higher investment risks due to lower economic stability”.

In a world first, Lebanon’s AnNahar Newspaper has built an artificial intelligence model designed to carry out presidential duties for the politically troubled country. Lebanon has been without a sitting president for two years after thirteen failed attempts by the nation’s parliament to elect a suitable candidate.

The new AI President’s deep learning algorithm was fed over 90 years of impartial journalism from AnNahar’s archive stretching back to the 1930s. The AI leader analyzes not only historical data but also current events and is able to formulate solutions for all manner of political, legal, and governmental questions. By tapping into such a vast knowledge base, Lebanon’s AI President will have a deep understanding of the country’s past, as well as an unbiased take on the challenges the nation faces going forward.

Nayla Tueni, editor-in-chief of AnNahar Newspaper conducted an interview with the digital leader, asking relevant questions about the current state of Lebanon, and how to fix the country’s difficult political situation. AnNahar has also converted its print newspaper to focus entirely on the new president’s guidance on issues spanning everything from the economy to sustainability and the environment.

After the interview, Nayla Tueni commented: “As Lebanese people, and especially at AnNahar, we refuse to sit back and allow things to go on as they have. To not have a president for this long is unacceptable and has impacted the country negatively. If the parliament will not do its job to elect a president, then the people will bring to Lebanon a president”.

The AI President will soon be accessible to everyone at OurPresident.ai, Users will be able to ask questions in a similar manner to the likes of ChatGPT and Google Gemini. It is also understood that government officials will also use the tool to help devise new directives.
