Women’s Executive Leadership Trade Mission to Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar 

The Bilateral Chamber, in partnership with the U.S. Commercial Service, is organizing and leading an executive-led women’s trade mission to the Kingdoms of Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, and the State of Qatar, June 3-8, 2023. This multi-sector trade mission will introduce women-owned and women-led businesses to potential partners and government officials in the three countries.  


This trade mission is aligned with the International Trade Administration’s Women’s Global Trade Empowerment Program which supports women who wish to grow their businesses in new markets. The role and prominence of women in the workplace is rapidly changing. The World Bank ranked Saudi Arabia as a top reformer on women’s rights at work. As more women enter the workforce, KSA has made pay discrimination illegal and women now have more freedom on matters of personal affairs.

Application deadline: May 5, 2023
