The American Chamber of Commerce in Qatar (AmCham Qatar) hosted a reception on Monday to welcome Thomas J Donohue, the president and CEO of the US Chamber of Commerce, and his accompanying delegation to Qatar. The networking event provided a platform for Qatari and US stakeholders to explore trade-related opportunities.
The delegation comprised several US Chamber of Commerce officials, including Khush Choksy, senior vice-president of the Middle East & Turkey Affairs; Christopher Roberti, senior vice-president for Cyber, Intelligence, and Security Policy; and Steve Lutes, vice-president of the Middle East Affairs.
Robert Hager, chairman of AmCham and Partner at Squire Patton Boggs, was also in attendance along with William Grant, Chargé d’Affaires at the US embassy in Qatar.
Hager said: “The US Chamber of Commerce is a powerful advocate of US business worldwide and we have been fortunate to have their support since our founding in 2010. We can always count on their sound advice and guidance, making available the resources of the chamber to help us promote US business in Qatar and expand the commercial relationship between the two countries.”
Donohue added: “Qatar has a vibrant, growing market that American businesses are eager to access. The US Chamber will continue working with AmCham Qatar, as well as government and business leaders to explore new ways in which our nations can collaborate to strengthen this important bilateral economic relationship.”
In a statement, AmCham Qatar said it endeavours to bring together US and Qatari stakeholders with the aim of exploring new relationships that strengthen collaboration and deepen business ties. The networking event is the latest example of AmCham’s vibrant programme of activities that celebrate the strengthening economic and bilateral ties between the US and Qatar.
Some of the companies that attended the reception included Boeing, Squire Patton Boggs, Northwestern University Qatar, Libra Trading Company, Carnegie Mellon University Qatar, ConocoPhillips, Citi Bank, and Marsh.
