The delegation of the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry to the United States recently encouraged American companies to increase their investments to important sectors within the Abu Dhabi region.
The meeting started with a speech from H.E. Hamad Al-Awadhi, who said the visit was the result of the delegation’s participation in efforts to encourage U.S. companies to further invest in projects that are currently underway in Abu Dhabi. He emphasized the many available investment opportunities for U.S. companies in a variety of sectors and said such investments would also strategically pay off for Abu Dhabi, specifically citing projects with Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030.
Al-Awadhi specifically encouraged investments from American companies that are involved in oil and gas operations, as such investments could mutually benefit both parties. The meeting was held with officials from the U.S.-United Arab Emirates Business Council in Houston. His Excellency Hamad Al-Awadhi, board member at the Abu Dhabi Chamber, and other delegation members attended the meeting.
A large quantity of business leaders and directors from U.S. companies as well as His Excellency Ali Al-Jarwan, chief executive officer of Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Co. also attended the meeting.
Through Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030, the region has grown more attractive to outside investors.
