ABSTRACT
The author examines the proposed free trade agreement (FTA) between India and Middle East's Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). He argues that the FTA would be a win-win situation for India and the six-member GCC. He also mentions that an FTA with the oil-rich GCC would also boost India's growing petrochemical industry. In addition, the FTA would cut tariffs on goods and services.
