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.
The National U.S. – Arab Chamber of Commerce (NUSACC) recently received the 2016 President’s “E” Award for Export Service. While various chambers of commerce have won the “E” Award for Export Service over the years, this is the first time in the 54-year history of the award that it went to a chamber that is dedicated to U.S. – Arab relations. The “E” 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 receives no income from foreign governments. NUSACC’s stakeholders include more than 25,000 companies, and the vast majority of these are small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) based in the United States.
The National U.S.-Arab Chamber of Commerce is the only business entity in the United States that is officially recognized and sanctioned 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 decisionmakers 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 United States and the Arab world. 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 offices in New York, Houston, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, 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.
