The member countries of the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (GCC) (Arab States of the Gulf, consisting of United Arab Emirates, Kingdom of Bahrain, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Sultanate of Oman, State of Qatar and State of Kuwait) are expected to post robust growth over the next decade both in terms of population and GDP.

By 2020 the Arab States of the Gulf (GCC) population is forecast to reach 53.5m, a 30% increase over the level in 2000. Over the same period, the region’s real GDP is expected to grow by 56%. Nominal GDP, which was US$341.6bn in 2000, is forecast to soar to over US$1trn in 2010 and US$2trn in 2020. Although the economic forecast is positive, it carries a risk: that unmanaged growth will bring negative side effects such as power shortages and soaring prices for food. Some GCC states are already experiencing sporadic shortages of electricity and gas, while water supplies are already strained and food shortages loom as risks for an import dependent region.

A key challenge for the Gulf in the next decade therefore will be to manage energy, water, and food resources to ensure both high living standards and sustainable growth in the long term. Aware of these challenges, Gulf Arab states are undertaking a variety of measures to ensure long-term sustainable growth.

Introduction : In 2021, there will be a tremendous focus on wellness and prevention to curb chronic diseases. The other big trend is more private sector participation. In fact, private sector participation is set to increase by almost 30 to 50 percent. The next trend will be in insurance-based health care financing and the insurance system, resulting in growth opportunities, especially in virtual health. Localization of manufacturing and localization of the workforce is another big area of growth. For the region, it is expected that 30 percent of medical devices and 40 percent of pharmaceutical products will be manufactured locally by 2025. Local manufacturing is set to increase from 2 percent to almost 30 percent in the next four years. Moreover, digitalization by way of home to hospital is where the infrastructure is going to be built. Today, 50 percent of hospitals in the UAE and KSA use some level of digital solutions and IT based access. Also, it has been observed that 80 percent of doctors are using tablets, smartphones, and medical applications.

What are the main sectors attracting investment

in the GCC countries in the coming years?

There is no doubt that the Swiss private sector has a valuable opportunity to benefit from the infrastructure projects, such as the railway project, which is more than 2,200 kilometers and is expected to provide more than 80 thousand jobs for the GCC citizens and expatriates, as well as opportunities derived from the localization of the railway industry, and thus the Geneva Chamber can benefit from this plan for example by calling the experts in this industry to build a center for sustainability, training and rehabilitation of specialists of GCC in order to build a real railway industry.
There are many opportunities in the industrial sector, in this side the Swiss investors can benefit from the opportunities offered by the Gulf Organization for Industrial Consulting (GOIC). Also, Geneva Chamber of Commerce can benefit from the vision of Saudi Arabia 2030, which included many opportunities through the privatization of important sectors such as health, education, infrastructure, entertainment, and tourism. Other important opportunities are available through Expo 2020 in Dubai and the importance of Swit- zerland’s presence in this exhibition, as well as the World Cup 2022 to be organized in Doha, and other opportunities in Bahrain through the Vision of the Kingdom of Bahrain 2030, which has achieved many positive results so far, in addition to industrial sectors opportunities and logistics services in the region of Duqm in the Sultanate of Oman, which is located in the most strategic areas and launched in 2008.
There is the possibility to benefit as well from partnerships with the Kuwaiti private sector and the government sector through the establishment of partnership projects between the private and public sectors in Kuwait. Swiss companies can establish joint ventures in the United Arab Emirates, especially in the areas of energy, banking and various services and benefit from a large and promising market.
In the Federation of Chambers, we can provide more information on the investment opportunities and other related regulations and legislations. We have an excellent and sophisticated legislative environment that is undergoing many reforms in order to facilitate the investment environment for the foreign investors

The Swiss analysts continued to say that economic cooperation will be Switzerland’s first- priority in the bilateral relations with the GCC countries in the next few years. Innovation, new technologies and sustainable development will be among priorities.

In 2017, Memorandum of Understanding between

the Federation of GCC Chambers (FGCCC) & The Geneva Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Services (CCIG)

There is no doubt that the city of Geneva is an important and attractive city for cooperation in the field of economy and trade. It is considered an economic capital because it is characterized by a strategic position for the global economy, as well as an incubator of the United Nations and other international organizations and international bodies and centers. Switzerland has strong economic ties with the Gulf Cooperation Council, not to mention the GCC countries are Switzerland’s first partner in the Middle East. The volume of foreign trade between the GCC and Switzerland has grown rapidly over the past years. Trade volume has increased from $3.5 billion in 2005 to $8 billion in 2012 and then to $25 billion in 2016,

One of the main objectives of the Memorandum of Understanding is to increase investment opportunities between the two sides, organize joint events, organize visits for trade delegations between the two regions, encourage technology transfer, spread awareness of private sectors of both sides on the most important investment opportunities in both regions, as well as perform programs to facilitate the exchange of experience in the areas of technology and commercial franchise, especially cooperation between small and medium enterprises, and strengthen cooperation between the private sectors of both sides. We expect this MoU to open new horizons for cooperation, especially in the provision of distinguished services to members of the Gulf Chambers, and to benefit from the development of business through the cooperation of Gulf and Swiss institutions in expanding trade exchanges in goods and services, especially in the handicrafts and crafts industries, and the marketing of the Gulf cooperation council products in food and other services in which it as relative advantage.

The MoU will provide a platform for specialized trade delegations representing various sectors of health, education, food, and other Swiss companies to the Gulf Chambers of Commerce, in order to meet their counterparts, and to familiarize with the investment environment in the GCC countries, and to discover the most important investment opportunities.

Switzerland has the economic and financial resources, and has sufficient experience in the field of services, especially education, banking, health, and technology, especially in watches and jewelry, not to mention the agricultural and food special capacities. Therefore, Gulf businessmen have great opportunities to benefit from these elements and to establish strategic partnerships that serve the interests of the Gulf. In addition to inviting more than 750,000 small and medium-sized enterprises in the Gulf to develop their business with Swiss companies will also benefit Gulf businessmen and young people from their Swiss counterparts in developing the innovation and entrepreneurship skills especially in the field of knowledge economy, well as develop cooperation in the fields of scientific research, and cooperation in the development of educational system and training programs.
Also, there are areas of cooperation between GCC and Swiss businesswomen, especially in the empowerment of Gulf women and benefiting from the support programs provided by GCC governments in forging partnerships with their Swiss counterparts.
