Arrangements have been made for representatives of the UK Embassies in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Palestine and Syria and the states of Dubai and Abu Dhabi to all come together at the Holiday Inn, Impington, Cambridge 0930-1430 on the 11th March.
Taher El Sherif, Secretary General, Egyptian-British Chamber of Commerce will give a presentation entitled ‘Latest political & economic developments in Egypt.’
John Bridge OBE Chief Executive of Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce, said:
“With ongoing tensions in the Middle East, this event will give local businesses a valuable insight into the effects of the unrest on business opportunities and ensure that companies are not missing out”.
Chairman of the Chambers International Committee, Chris Kubicki, said “there is a great deal of international business undertaken across the eastern region with Middle Eastern countries and with the support of UKTI we have brought together the UK’s experts who are closely in touch with a fast moving situation. This will present businesses throughout the region with an unrivalled opportunity to obtain guidance as to how best to protect and promote their business”.
The event will embrace a number of speakers with first hand experience of doing business in the Arab states and will present an important opportunity for businesses to share their own experience and concerns as they face an unprecedented and lengthy period of uncertainty.
