(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) The number of nationals and national corporate bodies of the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf(GCC) countries who bought up real estates in another GCC member increased by 51.1% in 2011 to 16107, up from 10654 in 2010, recent figures from the GCC Secretariat General Information Center-Statistical Department, showed.

This takes the total such inter-GCC real estate ownerships to 93767 by the end of 2011, compared to 77804 by the end of the previous years, reported the UAE news agency WAM.

The UAE came first among GCC nations in terms of attracting nationals of other GCC nationals with 10873 registered contracts (67.5%), followed by Oman with 3364 registered contracts representing a 20.9% share, and Bahrain in third place with 1189 contracts.

In 2011, Kuwaitis were the most buying of real estates in other GCC countries with 8130 ownerships, followed by Saudis (2312) and Emiratis (2267).

Allowing nationals of GCC member countries to own real estates in other GCC countries is among the ten domains of the GCC common market as defined by the economic agreement in 2001.

The agreement gives GCC national natural and legal persons (entities) of any member state the same treatment accorded to its own citizens, without differentiation or discrimination, in all economic activities including real estate ownership.
