The Oman American Business Center (OABC) and Stories announce a new strategic partnership aimed at supporting OABC member companies to grow their business and expand beyond borders under the “Spotlight on U.S. – Oman Free Trade Agreement (FTA)” awareness campaign.

OABC is the official affiliate of the US Chamber of Commerce in Oman, with a mission to foster commercial development between the U.S. and Oman and is also the largest and most active business networking group in the Sultanate. Stories is an online portal that supports business owners and founders to grow their businesses.

The OABC’s unwavering commitment to empowering businesses is further cemented through the “Spotlight on U.S. – Oman Free Trade Agreement (FTA)” awareness program and their efforts in providing businesses with critical insights into leveraging the FTA’s benefits, including tariff elimination and non-tariff trade facilitation.

With this strategic collaboration, Stories will be instrumental in amplifying OABC’s awareness efforts by harnessing the power of social media. With a dynamic tech-enabled portal, Stories’ expertise will be channeled towards promoting OABC’s FTA awareness program, and empowering businesses to seize global opportunities with confidence.

Stories will also provide OABC members with exclusive workshops and coaching calls tailored towards helping businesses unlock growth opportunities and drive success for executives, founders and business owners. 

“We look forward to working with Stories, an organization that shares our vision for fostering economic growth and building strong connections,” said Rebecca Olson, Chief Executive Officer at OABC. “The FTA has been benefiting Omani companies, American companies and even other foreign investors in Oman for over a decade, but there is so much more potential to see trade increase between our two nations. Highlighting the stories of small to large companies taking advantage of the FTA successfully is an excellent way to encourage more engagement and growth.”.

“We are thrilled to embark on this powerful partnership with OABC, where our shared vision of empowering businesses to flourish in the global marketplace aligns perfectly,” said Lubna Forzley, Founder and CEO at Stories. “By combining the expertise of Stories and the esteemed network of OABC we will unlock new horizons and opportunities for growth, ensuring that businesses can confidently stride towards success and leave a lasting impact on the global stage.”
