It was twenty-seven years ago when the leaders of the six GCC States met in Riyadh to form the Gulf Cooperation Council which consists of the United Arab Emirates, the Kingdom of Bahrain, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the Sultanate of Oman, the State of Qatar and the State of Kuwait.  Of the many objectives and goals that were then agreed upon one of the most unique was achieving the long-term comprehensive development strategy goal which states that “The complete interlinking of the infrastructure network among the GCC States, especially in the fields of electricity, transportation, communication, and information”. 

Consequently, the GCC Interconnection Authority (GCCIA) was established in 2001, as a joint stock company subscribed by the six- (6) Gulf States with an authorized capitalization of $1,400 million. It is the owner and responsible body for the GCC Interconnection which links the power systems of all the 6 GCC States.

GCCIA is managed by a Board of twelve directors – 2 representatives per GCC country.  The Chairmanship is rotated amongst the Member states every 3 years based on the order of the Arabic alphabet.  The current Chairmanship is now with the United Arab Emirates.
