At a Glance: National U.S.-Arab Chamber of Commerce
To promote, support, and strengthen U.S.-Arab business and economic cooperation.
The National U.S. - Arab Chamber of Commerce (NUSACC), established nearly 50 years ago, is America’s longest serving organization dedicated to U.S. - Arab business. NUSACC is widely regarded as the voice of American business in the 22 countries of the Arab world and the premier portal to the United States for Arab commercial enterprises.
NUSACC recently received the President’s “E” Award for Export Service. While various chambers of commerce have won the “E” Award over the years, this is the first time in the 55-year history of the award that it went to a chamber that is dedicated to U.S. – Arab relations. This award, conferred by the President of the United States, is the highest recognition that any U.S. entity may receive for supporting export activity.
NUSACC is a non-partisan, non-profit organization that is registered under U.S. law as a 501-c-6 chamber of commerce. The Chamber is an independent, membership-driven entity that is funded by its member companies and stakeholders. NUSACC’s stakeholders include more than 40,000 companies, the vast majority of which are small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) based in the United States.
NUSACC is the only business entity in the United States that is officially recognized and authorized by the League of Arab States and the General Union of Arab Chambers of Commerce, Industry, and Agriculture. As such, NUSACC is a “sister chamber” and partner to the national chambers of commerce throughout the Arab world.
On a daily basis, NUSACC works closely with government and private sector leaders throughout the Arab world, as well as high-level decision-makers in the U.S. business community, public policy research centers (“think tanks”), multilateral institutions, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), media, and the U.S. Government. With this in mind, NUSACC is uniquely positioned to link business entities in the United States to their counterparts throughout the Arab world.
NUSACC prides itself on its ability to serve as a commercial bridge between the USA and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Much of the Chamber’s success in spanning these corporate cultures can be attributed to NUSACC’s team of experienced professionals who believe in the Chamber’s core mission of strengthening U.S. - Arab relationships through mutually beneficial trade and investment. With four offices across the United States and its headquarters in Washington DC, NUSACC is the only chamber of its kind to provide “coast-to-coast” service. This nationwide coverage means that NUSACC is well positioned to serve its members in all 50 States and to provide outreach capabilities to all of America’s major markets.
