This meeting, which was hosted by the Bahrain National Gas Company (BANAGAS), was also attended by three senior representatives of the GPA and GPA - European Chapter.
The formation of a GCC Chapter of the GPA to be based in Bahrain was agreed in the meeting and a steering committee was formed to work on the By-Laws of the Chapter and to arrange for an organisation meeting in April 1993.
In the April organisation meeting, the GPA - GCC Chapter was formally declared, the By-Laws were approved and the members of the first Executive Committee consisting of Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secretary-Treasurer and four other members were selected.
On the 13th October 1993 the Executive Committee met in Bahrain and agreed to extend the Chapter's membership to suppliers.
