The Gulf Organization for Industrial Consulting (GOIC) will be hosting the meeting of the technical committee at its headquarters in Doha. The meeting is set to take place on the 4th and 5th of August 2015.
The Secretariat-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council had convened this meeting of GCC members of the technical committee in charge of the execution of the strategy. Participants will discuss the general framework document and the strategic plan for the development of GCC non-oil industrial exports (2016-2030).
The meeting will include a presentation of the strategy, followed by a discussion of the previous suggestions and remarks of specialized country representatives and experts. This meeting comes after a series of meetings that had previously discussed three stages of the strategy preparation project.
The objectives of the strategy include:
- Offering an accurate diagnosis of the GCC non-oil industrial exports performance and these industries’ ecosystem and challenges
- Means to boost the growth of these exports during a specific period of time
- How to benefit from global trade rules to support these exports
- How to learn from international success stories in boosting industrial exports.
The strategy also allows for benefiting from GCC integration to promote the growth of exports, boost trade between GCC countries and use the negotiation power of the GCC bloc to increase the accessibility of Gulf non-oil industrial exports to the markets of key partners throughout the globe.
