The U.S.-GCC Business Initiative focuses on three specific areas for its members: network development, policy formulation and advocacy, and business expansion.
The U.S.-GCC Business Council establishes formal and informal relationships with likeminded organizations in both the United States and the GCC, and works to create strategic ties with existing business development organizations there/in that region. The Initiative also organizes and hosts high-profile events, delegations, and conferences to promote enhanced business dialogue and cooperation among the American and GCC private sectors.
Policy Formulation and Advocacy
The U.S.-GCC Business Council serves as an advocate for member companies on macroeconomic, investment, and trade policies that enhance the ability of member companies to garner market access. Leveraging the U.S. Chamber’s position as the world’s largest business advocacy federation, the U.S.-GCC Business Council influences trade and investment policies in U.S. and GCC governments.
Given the rapid growth of the GCC market, the Initiative gives significant attention to the expansion of business opportunities for its member companies. The Initiative identifies projects, ventures, and partners to facilitate increased business development.
