Aramco IPO could push other Gulf states to list oil assets: economist | Reuters

Aramco IPO could push other Gulf states to list oil assets: economist | Reuters:

"Saudi Aramco's initial public offering (IPO) could encourage other Gulf countries to list their oil assets, a leading regional economist said, but the oil giant must clear uncertainties over taxation, OPEC policy and ownership of crude.

Nasser Saidi, a former economy minister of Lebanon, told Dubai Eye Radio in an interview broadcast on Wednesday that Aramco has to address how the company will separate its assets and liabilities from those of the state.

"Many countries could follow in the region. (The) UAE I think could potentially be attracted to this," Saidi said."
