Who We Are
The U.S.-GCC Business Initiative is the premier advocacy organization dedicated to strengthening the commercial and investment relationship between the United States and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries. Through this platform, we manage the important bilateral economic relationships with Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Oman, and Bahrain as well as engage key officials at the GCC Secretariat who affect trade and commerce across the six states.
The U.S.-GCC Business Initiative is deeply engaged with commercial and investment institutions in the region and leverages its partnerships and nine American Chambers of Commerce in the GCC countries.
The Chamber has signed Memoranda of Understanding with the following:
- Council of Saudi Chambers
- UAE Federation of Chambers and Industry
- Qatar Chamber of Commerce
- Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC)
- Sharjah Investment and Development Authority
In addition, the Chamber has a strong working relationship with the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC). These partnerships help provide access for the Chamber and our members to key government officials and business leaders in the region and serve as avenues to advance our policy and regulatory agenda.
