Founded in 1981 as a way to promote coordination between member states in all fields in order to achieve unity, the GCC countries have benefited enormously from assets and oil and gas reserves. These resources have generated significant financial liquidity in the six years between 2001 and 2007. This unified GCC market, whose present GDP exceeds $300bn, offers trading and investment opportunities, attracts significant FDI, especially from multinational corporations targeting regional manufacturing and services sectors. World Finance is pleased to recognise the Council's leading companies. Congratulations to the winners.
