A STRONGER BRIDGE

 

The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) is a political and economic alliance of six Middle Eastern countries—Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain, and Oman.

In 2006, Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and Singapore have agreed to start negotiations for a free trade agreement (FTA) which was in force in 2013. Yet the average Singaporean is unaware of the culture of GCC or opportunities for both regions to thrive.
