Visiting Congressional Staff Delegation Discusses Bilateral RelationsOctober 11, 2019
The U.S.-U.A.E. Business Council hosted a breakfast roundtable discussion with a visiting U.S. Congressional Staff Delegation on October 10, 2019 in Dubai.
This bipartisan delegation included staff from Democratic and Republican House and Senate members from the states of Arkansas, California, Florida, Idaho, Michigan, Maryland, Missouri, and New York.
The discussion, which concentrated on the U.S.-U.A.E. bilateral business relationship and its importance for U.S. national security and foreign policy, was attended by a select group of senior U.S. business executives in the defense, finance, technology, logistics, and legal sectors.
During the breakfast, business leaders engaged in meaningful discussion with the visiting delegation about their priorities in the U.A.E and the Gulf region. The delegation also heard from the business community about U.S.-U.A.E. bilateral relations and the latest regional developments.
Mr. Sebright concluded the event by thanking the visiting U.S. Congressional Staff Delegation and attendees for their time and strong commitment to the U.S.-U.A.E. bilateral relationship. He also made a plea to the group for Congressional support of the U.S. Pavilion at Expo 2020.
This event culminated a week-long visit by the delegation involving a series of high-level meetings with U.A.E. officials. The visit offered the delegation greater awareness and understanding of the close bilateral relationship between the U.S. and U.A.E. in key areas and sectors vital to both countries. It also provided the delegation with novel perspectives about the vital defense and security interests of the two nations, and the ongoing tensions in the region.Back to News
