The article reports on challenges facing the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states. Among them is a decline in oil production from 2013. According to Vahan Zanoyan, chairman and CEO of Switzerland's PFC Energy International, the Middle East could face an oil shortage from 2013-2015 as global demand outstrips supply. Other challenges facing the GCC include globalisation and competition fuelled by the rapid rise of emerging economies such as China.
