About  the EU-GCC

The Confederation of Danish Industry, BUSINESSEUROPE, VentureScout and the Federation of GCC Chambers have won the project under the European Union Foreign Policy Instrument. The purpose of the project is to strengthen the GCC-EU sustainable trade, investment, and business cooperation by building stronger business-to-business linkages and enhancing the policy dialogue between the GCC and EU countries.

The project’s partners will hold a number of roundtables in the GCC and EU to identify the most important barriers to trade and investment and explore ways to increase cooperation in key industries. The outcomes of the roundtables will be subject to further scrutiny by joint policy working groups and business advocacy activities.
