Economic development of the Middle East has been strongly influenced by western capitalism. From the 18th century and onwards, Great Britain and France alternatively competed against and cooperated with each other in order to exploit the ailing Ottoman Empire and to maximize their imperial interests.

To extract more resources, the western powers made huge investment in the development of the regional infrastructure.
