GCC Investment and Development Fuels Interest in Region

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 27, 2012) - The nations of the Gulf Cooperation Council have had a fortunate year so far, experiencing a level of prosperity largely unmatched by the rest of the world. Demand for the region's petroleum exports are high and revenues strong, which has helped support an unprecedented wave of development that ranges from infrastructure regeneration to the construction of cities that has spread through the region and onto the GCC's major trading partners.

There has also been positive news on the willingness of GCC members to establish stronger economic and political ties. This growing unity among the nations brings with it the potential for a significant new phase of relations for the region and with it the possibility of a new world power emerging in the Gulf.

With significant achievements and even greater prospects to come, World Finance reflects on the promise of the region in the GCC Investment and Development Awards 2012. These accolades celebrate the companies and bodies who are the driving force behind the developments originating in the region and signify the organisations set to have a significant global impact in the near future.
