H.E. Ambassador Lukman Faily spoke at the U.S.-Arab Business Leadership conference about the tremendous opportunities Iraq’s economy can offer to the U.S. and other partners as it moves towards a market economy. Ambassador Faily reiterated that new policies and regulations have been adapted to create an encouraging investment environment in Iraq. He also provided business leaders with an update and in-depth analysis of the current political situation in Iraq and the region.

Among the speakers were H.E. Deborah K. Jones, U.S. Ambassador to Libya, who spoke about partnering with an emerging Libya; and H.E. Mohammed Raja Al Hussaini, Ambassador of the League of Arab States to the United States, who spoke about the influence of culture on business and trade. In addition, Jose Fernandez, Assistant Secretary of State for Economic, Energy and Business Affairs spoke about building bridges of cooperation between the United Sates and the Arab world and the immense opportunities provided by this conference and other similar events. Joining Ambassador Faily at the conference was Mr. Naufel Al-Hasan, Commercial Attaché at the Embassy of the Republic of Iraq.

The conference, hosted by the U.S.-Arab Chamber of Commerce, took place August 20-22, 2013 at the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy at Salve Regina University in Rhode Island and included leaders from the corporate community and others interested in promoting economic relationships between the U.S. and the Arab countries.

The conference aimed to build a bridge between the U.S. and Middle East in the private sector; to honor the legacy of partnership; and to promote new alignment through business opportunities and personal connections.
