U.S. exports of U.S. agricultural products to the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC-6) members (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates (or UAE), and Saudi Arabia) increased 1% to nearly US$3 billion in 2016. U.S. exports of consumer food products dropped 10% in 2016 and totaled nearly US$1.7 billion, which was 56% of the agricultural total. This partner group is a solid importer of U.S. processed foods, totaling US$1.2 billion, a decline of 2% from the prior year. 

The advantages for U.S. exporters of consumer ready food products to the region are numerous. They include a high quality image of U.S. products, high regional per capita incomes, and a broad familiarity with U.S. culture. There is an increasing interest in U.S. products, as well as an increasing number of tourists to Bahrain, Oman and the U.A.E. in particular; and a U.S. military presence in Kuwait and Qatar. There are also consistently low tariffs and relatively transparent import procedures.
