The Council is well-equipped to connect members to business partners, government officials and investors in the United States and Qatar. By doing so, our member companies have been presented unique opportunities for business expansion in both the US and Qatar. The Council also has the ability to bring Qatari investors to the United States, providing Foreign Direct Investments into a range of industries. The Council leverages its relationships in the United States and Qatar to assist in making viable deals and supporting its member companies against the competition.
Through the Council’s various programs including roundtables, networking events, forums, and conferences, it is able to cultivate the US-Qatar business community, often at the senior executive level. Roundtable discussions allow member companies to come together and discuss important topics from economics to education to politics, in a positive environment that has the potential to affect their business or the image of either nation.
The Council has the unique ability to obtain rather difficult information about Qatar where, in our case, it has been an advantage to our member companies. Market research, trade information, and commercial activities are just some of the areas where we have been able to give our members a competitive edge. As the Qatari market is one that is continuously being discovered, the Council has also been dedicated to educating American companies on important guidelines of doing business, Qatari culture and business etiquette throughout the Gulf region.
As a member you are entitled to "The Weekly Brief" that includes valuable news items related to Qatar, the ongoing US relationship with Qatar, and news about other members of the Council. The Council's President, includes written statements that touch on the week's news and the business environment.
