JMH Group is advising Qatar’s Salam International, a publicly traded company involved in the energy, construction, retail/distribution, trading and investment sectors, as it targets US growth.

President Biden in March designated Qatar a Major Non-NATO Ally, which gives the Arab State preferential access to US military equipment and technology equal to that of key American allies such as Japan and Australia.

Bethesda-based JMH will help Salam capitalize on the expanded opportunities offered by the MNNA designation.

It will develop and manage the engagement with the US Congress, Pentagon, State Dept and other federal agencies with the intent to encourage investment in identified areas of priority by Salam, according to the contract.

JMH will initially focus on the areas of cybersecurity, sensors and counter-terrorism. It will identify teaming partners in those sectors, as well as oil-gas, electro-mechanical and power-oriented industries.

It has a five-month contract with a monthly retainer of $25K.

Salam is active in Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Palestine, Bahrain, Jordan and Lebanon.
