RIYADH: The USA and Gulf oil producers will work collectively to reduce the impression of low oil costs, President Barack Obama stated in Riyadh on Thursday.
They “will launch a brand new excessive-degree financial dialogue with a give attention to adjusting to decrease oil costs, growing our financial ties and supporting GCC reforms”, he stated on the shut of a Gulf Cooperation Council summit.
Saudi Arabia, the world’s largest oil exporter, and its petroleum-wealthy neighbours have been pressured to chop subsidies and undertake different measures to cope with deficits brought on by plunging oil costs, which make up the majority of their revenues.
Oil costs have collapsed from greater than $one hundred a barrel in early 2014 to round $forty this month, partially as a result of Saudi Arabia refuses to chop manufacturing because it struggles to maintain its market share alongside American shale oil producers.
Obama stated underpinning the brand new GCC-US financial dialogue is the necessity for “an financial system that serves all its residents and respects common human rights”.
