GCC summit to tackle cross-border railway

posted on 21/09/2005: 721 views

Leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council states will discuss during their forthcoming summit in Abu Dhabi a number of vital topics, including plans to construct a cross-border railway network. "Issues on the summit's agenda include proposals to establish a grid for desalinated water, development of a unified smart card and construction of an intra-GCC railway network," Mohammed Obaid Al Mazrouei, GCC's Assistant Secretary General for Economic Affair, told WAM yesterday.

The summit, scheduled to be held in December 2005, will also review progress of the GCC customs union. Inter-GCC trade increased by 20 per cent after the union was set up. Al Mazrouei, who made the remarks during a speech he delivered before a seminar on commercial fraud, admitted that the union was still facing teething problems, "which," he said "is normal for a body that is still in a transitional stage."
