A feasibility study for a railway network between the six GCC countries is almost over, stated Abdulrahman Bin Hamad Al Attiyah, secretary-general of the Gulf Cooperation Council.
'Plans for the GCC railway project are well advanced and the leaders will examine the feasibility study during the GCC Summit to be held next month in Muscat,' he was quoted as saying in the Gulf News report, on the sidelines of the 78th meeting of the GCC Ministers of Finance and Economy.
Other issues discussed at the summit included the approval of the agenda for the GCC monetary union and monetary council, and Yemen's application to join the Gulf Standardisation and Measurement Organisation, the Gulf Organisation for the Industrial Council and Gulf TV and Radio Organisation.
