Oliver Oehms

Delegate of the German Industry & Commerce for Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Yemen
German-Saudi Arabian Liaison Office for Economic Affairs (GESALO)

Oliver Oehms (born 1973) grew up in Trier, a picturesque ancient town close to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. He majored (M. A.) in Political Science, Public International Law and African Studies from the University of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. Already during his studies Oliver started working for German Africa Business Association (Afrika-Verein e. V.) where his last position was Regional Manager Western Africa. From 2003 onwards he headed the Foreign Trade and Trade Fairs Department of one of the regional Chambers of Commerce and Industry. Working and living in Hanau, he enjoyed the attractiveness of a highly industrialized part of the Rhine-Main region, which is beautifully embedded in a densely wooded landscape.

Early 2009 Oliver moved with his family to Jakarta where he was tasked to develop a new service unit in the national Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KADIN Indonesia) in Jakarta. Together with a team of local professionals he developed new market-driven services and supported the Chamber Board in responding to the many challenges a dynamically developing economy encounters. Still in Jakarta, Oliver was hired from 2014 onwards by Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) for promoting a program of regional economic development. Since mid-January 2016 he has been appointed as the Delegate of German Industry and Commerce for Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Yemen.
