Member Testimonials

The best way to learn about the OABC is to ask a current member.
Here you can see the diversity of OABC membership and read about each member’s unique experience.

“I had been looking to find more information on the newly established and exciting OAPFD (Offset Authority). The OABC had already taken the lead in organizing a seminar with the top management of the OAPFD. The event was very well organized and informative. The format, friendly staff and members allowed for many opportunities to establish quality business leads. I try not to miss any of OABC’s events!”

Khalid Kassar: CEO

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the OABC for their great work in making the BMS event a success. As a premium member of OABC, I’ve experienced firsthand how it helps us connect with other businesses in both Oman and the United States. This invaluable network and support system is undoubtedly contributed to our business’s growth. After this wonderful event, I’m confident that BMS will be the talk of the town for some time. The OABC team has motivated us further to achieve higher and bigger goals. Looking forward to being “together” in another event.

The joint event ‘New Income Taxes in Oman’ co hosted by Crowe Horwath and OABC was superb in terms of arrangements, audience and the media visibility. Hope to conduct more such events in the future.

The OABC is certainly a very popular platform for disseminating information and helping business entities in Oman improve their business contacts and relationships with the USA.
The many forums that OABC has organized on subjects like the FTA, Oman Labour Laws, Doing Business with countries in the region, security protection, etc. have certainly helped the Bahwan Organization. In addition, we enjoy the many Social Events that the OABC organizes to help us get to know the many members in the OABC better.

OABC has played a significant role to enhance the business relationship between Oman & USA. The information provided to members, guidelines, as well as meetings from time to time, are not only very professional . I have personally learnt quite a bit about US business and possibilities of improving business for Muscat Pharmacy and its principals in the USA. I shall continue to be an active member, and happily recommend OABC Membership to other Omani businesspeople.

“The OABC is one of the most valuable organizations to me as a professor of commercial law in Oman. The topics of the seminars are contemporary, informative, and help me understand the business world in Oman, the Gulf area, and beyond. Importantly, I find that the in-person exchanges are invaluable professional networking contacts. The entire raison d’etre of this professional organization is to help its members better adapt and learn about commercial experiences in Oman. I don’t know what I would do without the OABC!

Nitin Sapre: CEO
I have been a Corporate Member of the OABC for over 4 years in Oman.  The OABC provides a great platform to build productive and meaningful business relationships outside of my own immediate network.

 Europcar has won new business as a result of the relationships we have built through the OABC network. They have also provided me with great opportunities to identify business partners or suppliers whom my company has used for various services. The membership also comes with plenty of interesting value-added activities for Premium members, like visiting the New Muscat Int’l Airport, Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre and the various useful seminars on topics of current interest.

The fact that it’s also been great fun along the way is simply the icing on the cake.

OABC has organized seminars regarding the Free Trade Agreement ( FTA ) existing between Oman and USA.  As a result, my company is in the process of initiating discussions with US companies to export steel office furniture to USA from our manufacturing facility in Sohar.

Membership in the OABC is an avenue for companies to advance exports to the USA, by learning to take advantage of the FTA and its benefits.

We have immensely benefitted due to our association with OABC, because of which 3M got to know us approximately 3 years ago. We are now their primary dealer for Passive Fire Protection, Industrial Tapes & Adhesives, and now DI-NOC.

Because of this relationship we made through the OABC, we have steadily grown.

Moosa Al Hadrami: CEO

I attended an event that discussed Oman’s legal and tax updates. The event was informative on the legal side and gave me a perspective about the current and future tax situation in the Sultanate. Members and guests of the OABC asked insightful questions that answered many questions I had. Like always, I love OABC events that generally always make me feel productive and learn new business topics as well as new connections. Finally, OABC hosts amazing outdoor events that I try to never miss.

My company has been a premium member of OABC for over 4 years. The OABC is an excellent platform for networking and forging strong business alliances.

I was also part of the Oman Road Show to the US, which was an excellent opportunity to interact with industry leaders from Oman and the US — introductions made during the trip have greatly helped in building strong business connections.

The regularly organized seminars and thought leadership series present topics which are relevant to the issues and challenges being faced in the current economic environment. The OABC is a perfect platform for companies and individuals who want to grow and expand their business locally and internationally to the US

Since arriving in Oman in October 2018 I have been particularly impressed with the Oman American Business Council’s pro-active approach. Rebecca, Meruyert and the entire OABC team provide a full schedule of activities that promote not only USA / Omani trade links but reach out to embrace all businesses in the Sultanate and encourage effective networking. As a leading multi-media company in Oman, Apex Media derives outstanding value from Premium membership of the OABC and in turn we are always keen to promote both the OABC and its membership. This is certainly a business networking group that delivers, whatever nationality you represent.
