    This is very interesting and should be recognised as a potential opportunity to optimise the cost of energy across the Arab World; indeed, it is timely to pursue this strategic initiative at a time when many of the Arab Countries, especially those that suffered from instability, are in desperate need for energy. Notwithstanding the above, it is important to appreciate the dynamics of the changing energy landscape, where the Decentralised Solar, with or without storage, is pushing against large international integration of Grids. Additionally, the political dimension of the PAN Arab Interconnection is a serious challenge to overcome, regardless of the strong economic business case. I have been involved in setting up and implementing a number of Interconnections in the Region, UAE, GCC and participated in the Pan Arab Electricity Market discussion; there are numerous lesson to be deduced and I think a new Strategy is necessary, bearing in mind the case of the GCCIA which has not been exploited in line with potentials and expectation.
