'Dependency' relations emerge when two or more economies, including their world trade, create a situation in which some countries can expand while others can do so only as a reflection of that expansion. The gradual integration of the Arab states into the international economic system and the requirement that economic development in such states be articulated with the needs of technologically more advanced countries, generated the patterns of dependency relations in the Arab world. While, before the increasing importance of oil, Arab countries did not show much economic disparity, the disparity became highly significant when some Arab countries exported oil and others could not. The circumstances in the oil-producing countries gave rise to 'secondary dependency' in that several developing countries began to depend for aid on the oil-producing countries, themselves dependent on the economic conditions and policies of industrial nations.
