Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker Infrastructure Business Development Mission to the Middle East
United Arab Emirates - Saudi Arabia - Qatar | March 8-14, 2014
Exciting Opportunity to Expand Your Business in the Middle East
Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker will lead a senior-executive Business Development Mission to the Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC) of the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. This mission will highlight export opportunities for U.S. businesses in three leading industry sectors with an emphasis on project management and engineering (including construction, architecture and design), renewable energy (solar, wind, waste-to-energy), smart grid and energy efficiency, and environmental technologies (including water/wastewater; air pollution control; and waste management).
“Connecting U.S. businesses with opportunities in new markets is a fundamental to the mission of the Department of Commerce and our ‘Open for Business Agenda,’” said U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker. “This is a particularly exciting time to be looking toward the Middle East and countries such as the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar as a destination for U.S. exports, especially in the infrastructure sector. Exports now support nearly 10 million U.S. jobs, up 1.3 million since 2009. Trade missions like these are critical to building on that success, and to furthering the Obama Administration’s efforts to help U.S. businesses compete and succeed in the global economy.”
