MERITS AND DEMERITS OF REGIONAL FREE TRADE AGREEMENTS IN REFERENCE TO GCC

In post second world war, there has been a sustained and growing ‘Balkanization’ of what hitherto has been unified global trading system. Most free trade agreements play a very vital role of liberalizing trade between the member states and other countries. They aim at making business conduct to be less complicated across the regions and attract more investors enabling the growth in business within a region. The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) was formed by countries in the Arabia peninsula to forge unity among the Arabic countries. These countries which hold most of the oil reserves in the world have through GCC formed a major global block for trading in the world (PTA dossier 2008). There are many merits and demerits that are associated with Free Trade Agreements within a region. This paper intends to look deeply at these advantages and disadvantages of FTAs within GCC. A description of the structure of GCC will be given, member states, areas where they cooperate, the advantages and disadvantages of FTA and the achievements it has made both politically and economically will be addressed. The future plans it has for its members will be looked into and a conclusion will be drawn.

... of both PTA and FTA between the members. The integration of the monetary union should be speeded up since this will improve the level of trading between the member states. By opening up industries to for Foreign Direct Investment, GCC countries are likely to benefit in such areas such as ICT. The culture should be less harsh upon women as this is likely to increase the level of domestic investment.
