U.S.-U.A.E. Business Council
In just less than ten years, the U.S.-U.A.E. Business Council has become the preeminent organization advocating on behalf of commercial bilateral relations in Washington, D.C. Launched in May 2007 and inaugurated by His Highness, Crown Prince, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and His Highness, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, membership in the Business Council has grown to nearly 130 members based in both the U.S. and the U.A.E. and from across a broad range of vital commercial sectors.
In addition to first-class programming including trade missions of the highest levels, road shows, and must-attend events across the U.S. and the Emirates, the U.S.-U.A.E. Business Council is an important voice on critical policy priorities between the two countries, including but not limited to energy development in the Renewable, Nuclear, Oil & Gas Sectors, Aerospace, Defense & Security, Infrastructure Development & Green Build, Media, Medicine, Tourism, and Education.
The U.S.-U.A.E. Business Council is also a platform, not only for speaking as one unified voice on behalf of the business communities in both countries, but also as an advocate on behalf of the U.S.-U.A.E. trade and commercial relationship more broadly. Whether helping U.S. companies expand relationships, identifying “win-win” partnerships, or assisting U.A.E. companies in investing directly in the United States, the Business Council plays an absolutely critical role.
The U.A.E. is the single largest export market for the U.S. in the greater Middle East – including India, Turkey, and Israel. Indeed, this is a fast-growing and dynamic bilateral trade relationship and truly a remarkable story of which we are so very proud to be a part of.
