The Bilateral US-Arab Chamber of Commerce will be leading a US Delegation comprised of senior energy sector executives to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. During this trip, the Bilateral will introduce these US leaders to some of the most critical decision-makers in the oil, gas & petrochemical sectors in both Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. This trip marks the 16th consecutive year that the Bilateral is leading successful US Trade Delegations to the Middle East and North Africa. The Bilateral works hand-in-hand with the Administration and its US Departments of Commerce, State and Energy and each of their Ministerial counterparts in the Middle East and North Africa. Leveraging these unique relationships built over time, the Bilateral Chamber's success ratio for delegates doing business AFTER a Trade Mission to the countries they visit exceeds 82% to date.
