The U.S. – Qatar Business Council was established in 1996 with the goal of promoting commercial rel

ations between the United States and the State of Qatar. It is a non-profit, private sector organization which provides a forum for discussion of key economic, commercial and other issues of interest to American companies doing or planning to do business in Qatar. The Council also provides information and sponsors events and programs which provide insight into Qatar and its international and business environment. In early 1997, the Council opened its office in Washington, where it conducts its major activities.

The Council believes that the expected rapid development of Qatar’s unparalleled natural resources, coupled with the country’s hospitable business climate, provide an exceptional opportunity for US businesses. The Council, as the only American organization focused on improving commercial relations with Qatar, plans to play a leading role in expansion of the bilateral relationship.
