Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker to Lead Infrastructure Business Development Mission to the Middle East March 8-14, 2014

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 from March 8-14, 2014.

The 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).

Business Development Missions organized by the Department of Commerce provide a unique opportunity for businesses interested in exploring export opportunities overseas. Participating U.S. companies will meet with prescreened potential partners, agents, distributors, representatives, and licensees. The agenda will also include meetings with high-level national and local government officials, networking opportunities, and country and industry briefings.
