U.S.-Saudi Business Opportunities Forum only weeks away


iStockAnalyst.com carries a press release on the upcoming U.S.-Saudi Business Opportunities Forum, which we shamelessly share with you today because our Senior Editor, Lucien Zeigler, will be part of the conference planning and execution. As a reminder, we will be live blogging whenever possible from the conference, and sharing the latest developments with you from Chicago.

Approximately 200 Saudi business and government leaders will be there, including Saudi Minister of Commerce Abdullah Alireza and Saudi Petroleum and Natural Resources Minister Ali Al Naimi.

If you work in Energy or are an American businessman interested in doing business with Saudi Arabia, there is no better forum to meet your needs than this one – the first of its kind.

In related material, Pat Ryan of SUSRIS puts one of the longest running U.S.-Saudi business relationships into the context of the upcoming conference. He shares a history of the Illinois-based Caterpillar and Saudi Zahid family partnership. The two companies will celebrate six decades of work together for the mutual benefit of the United States and Saudi Arabia.

The forum is being put on by the Saudi Committee for International Trade (CIT) and the U.S.-Saudi Arabian Business Council.
