This chapter demonstrates an understanding of the natures of entrepreneurial activities in Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) economies. The six GCC member states—Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE)—have demonstrated an increasingly strong interest in entrepreneurial activities.

GCC economies have made progress in bankruptcy-related policy issues. For instance, the UAE's new bankruptcy law enacted in 2016 offers several paths to help companies facing financial difficulties.
