In 2002, the Supreme Council of the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (GCC) approved the launch of the customs union of the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf States (entered into force in 2003).

It also approved the procedures recommended by the Financial and Economic Cooperation Committee (Gulf Cooperation Council Ministers of Finance and Economy) for the creation of the customs union of the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf States.

The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) economies have gone so far in the field of the bilateral trade cooperation.
