Gary Locke, former secretary of the US Department of Commerce, commented ”We are fortunate that Saudi Arabia and the US have a strong foundation of trust and partnership to build on. Today Saudi Arabia is taking unprecedented steps to expand and diversify its economy into knowledge-based industries,” Locke said.
“American companies have the expertise and resources to help the Kingdom reach its ambitious development goals and the opportunities for commercial engagement and partnership are immense. When you look at the sum of these projects, you see a country that is demonstrating vision and a commitment to generational growth.”
The Forum will feature Davos-style panels, keynote speakers, and concurrent breakout sessions.
Many areas of opportunity for small and medium sized companies are available through networking events and one-on-one matchmaking programs will enable companies to connect on an individual-level and initiate new business relationships.
It will explore prospects of expanding cooperation in education, human resource development, petrochemical industries, agriculture, health services and finance.
The U.S.-Saudi Business Opportunities Forum is being organized by The Saudi Committee for International Trade, U.S.-Saudi Arabian Business Council and Saudi-US Trade Group in collaboration with the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Commerce& Industry and U.S. Commercial Service.
