Dubai Future Experts Candidates ask:
Before 1 January 2024, will negotiations on a China-Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) free trade agreement be completed?
Closing Jan 01, 2024 08:01AM UTC
China and the GCC began negotiations for a free trade agreement in 2005, and seeking an agreement was discussed on President Xi Jinping's December 2022 visit to Saudi Arabia (China Ministry of Commerce, Voice of America, Middle East Eye, GCC). The signing of an FTA or the announcement of an agreement in principle (see EU-Mercosur announcement) would count, and ratification would be immaterial (e.g., New Zeeland Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, BBC).
