In this paper we complete the local non-archimedean theory of Rankin-Selberg convolutions forU(2,1) that was suggested by S. Gelbart and I. Piatetski-Shapiro in [G,PS,1]. In addition, we prove two fundamental properties of the gamma factors (Theorem 6.3) which allow us to give a new proof of a strong multiplicity one theorem forU(2,1).
