Population growth rates in all six Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states are at 3% or more, with large numbers of expatriates - in some states, such as the UAE and Qatar, outnumbering locals - creating a disproportionately young population across the GCC.

Creating appropriate job opportunities for nationals, and reducing current unemployment, is a critical focus of GCC governments.
