Oman American Business Center to partner with U.S. Chamber of Commerce

Leading business group, the Oman American Business Center, has announced a new association with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

In a message to members, the Muscat-based organisation said it would rebrand as OABC: AmCham Oman.

The move is expected to create additional benefits and opportunities for its membership, including new ways to connect with American companies located around the world.

Established in 2003 to “foster the development of commercial activity” between the Sultanate of Oman and the United States of America, the group is made up of more than 150 businesses and has in excess of 1,400 individual members covering a range of nationalities.

Further details of the OABC’s association with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce will be outlined during a joining ceremony and reception to be held next Wednesday (24) at the Intercontinental Hotel in Muscat. Khush Choksy, Senior Vice President, Middle East and Turkey Affairs, U.S. Chamber of Commerce is due to attend, along with the American ambassador to Oman, Marc J. Sievers.

Mr Choksy and ambassador Sievers will join OABC president Ali Daud in providing details about the remit of the U.S. Chamber and its network, the importance of AmCham Oman in the region, and the new benefits available to OABC members.

UK expats and visitors to Oman are also encouraged to attend next week’s reception, which is due to start at 6.30pm. A registration form for the event can be found on the OABC’s website.
