WASHINGTON, D.C. — (U.S. Newswire) — February 17, 2009 —
“The Chicago Council’s visit is well-timed,” said Robertson. “Saudi Arabia is committed to an ambitious plan of national development that presents an abundance of opportunities for U.S. companies. “ He added “the USSABC is responding to an upsurge in inquiries about the Kingdom and is coordinating visits from a number of business delegations in 2009.”
The visit is part of The Chicago Council’s Leadership Study Mission, in which it has visited other Middle Eastern destinations in order to better understand the region’s political, economic, and social trends. The delegation is led by Mr. Lester Crown, Chairman of The Chicago Council on Global Affairs, and includes high-level business and civic leaders from the city of Chicago.
