Event Summary:
The primary goal of this U.S. Department of Commerce-certified trade mission is to strengthen commercial ties between the U.S. and Gulf markets, particularly Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates, through increased engagement on standards-related issues. In particular, the members of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) want to provide a strong, unified U.S. voice vis-à-vis the standards objectives on which the Gulf Standards Organization, its member national standards bodies, and other stakeholders in the region are focused, and to identify opportunities for increased cooperation with these Gulf counterparts. The trade mission delegation will be comprised of approximate 15 ANSI members representing a cross section of industries with equities primarily in the sectors of building and construction, water and sanitation, electrical safety, information and communications. During the mission, the delegates will meet with the leadership and technical committees of the Emirates Standards and Metrology Administration, the Saudi Arabia Standards and Metrology Organization, and the Gulf Cooperation Council Standardization Organization. Additional meetings will include the Saudi Ministry of Commerce and Investment, Saudi Customs Authority, and the Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council. Throughout the mission, delegates will have the opportunity to engage with U.S. companies operating in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
