The US-Qatar Business Council Mission

The Council provides information and sponsors events and programs which provide insight into Qatar and its international and business environment. As the only American organization focused exclusively on improving commercial relations with Qatar, the Council plays a leading role in the expansion of the bilateral relationship.

The Council is a membership-based organization, and its focus lies on providing value-added services to corporate members in the US, Qatar, and around the world.
