GCC branches granted equality to local companies

The UAE cabinet today gave its nod for GCC companies to open branches in the UAE and achieve full equality between their branches and those of national counterparts.

The move is in implementation of the GCC Supreme Council relevant resolution, which aimed at bolstering economic integration among GCC member states and consolidating the UAE status as the most GCC member state complying with the GCC apex body resolutions.
