The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries form an important market for UK businesses. Total exports of goods and services from the UK to GCC countries were £27.9 billion in the year to the end of June 2019, 4.3% of total UK exports. The UK and GCC countries do not currently trade on preferential terms. The UK is committed to deepening our trading relationship with the GCC countries and has a number of Government-to-Government trade dialogues, including the annual Joint Economic Committee with the United Arab Emirates and Joint Economic and Trade Committee (JETCO) with Qatar.
