Floyd Associates Publishes Report on the Economic Outlook of the Gulf Cooperation Council

A Long and Short Term Review of the Economic Outlook in the GCC

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - March 22, 2011) - Floyd Associates, a privately held consulting firm with operations in strategic development, investment banking, and mergers & acquisitions, announced today that it has published an economic outlook report on the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).

2010 was a year of relative economic recovery for the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. Growth in 2011 for the GCC region will be driven by hydrocarbons, infrastructure investments, and private sector activities. Thanks to the global economic recovery, the oil price has been peaking up since 2009.

Recent turmoil in Egypt and Libya has pushed oil prices over $100 per barrel. Given that oil revenues are the primary source of income for the GCC, the region will benefit from this price rise as increasing government revenues will enable funding of long term spending programs, including many multi-billion dollar infrastructure investments.

The long term growth of the GCC region will be driven by global demand for hydrocarbons, economic diversification, population growth, technological advancement, and globalization. We are positive about the overall economy of the region. According to Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) research, current $1 trillion economy will double to $2 trillion by 2020.
