What Makes OABC Different

We connect you with the right people. We help brief and prepare new-to-market US companies through our membership of American executives experienced in doing business on the ground in Oman as well as our extensive network of influential Omani government advisors.Working closely with the US Commercial Service, we work to promote business opportunities for US companies in Oman through trade delegations, informative panels on upcoming projects, networking, access to decision-makers, and matchmaking for joint ventures between local and American companies.

We push for the change that makes it easier to do business. We understand the difficulties that are faced when coming to set up businesses, especially with getting HR, Legal and Contracting issues done. We don’t hide behind a finger or brush the challenges under the rug. We are one of the very few business councils in the region with an advocacy committee dedicated to lobbying for change.

We believe in education for employment. Our members are closely affiliated with US-Arab Chambers, AMIDEAST, AIESEC, TAMKEEN, and others. One of our prime goals is to help empower people through skills development and education. OABC’s mentorship program launched in 2013 is our focused in-house CSR initiative that provides mentors and mentees a sound structure to benefit from.
