This week, the National U.S.-Arab Chamber of Commerce (NUSACC) hosted Sudan’s Speaker of the National Assembly, H.E. Ibrahim Ahmed Omer Ahmed, as part of NUSACC’s Expert Roundtable Series. The Speaker was accompanied by the highest level Parliamentary delegation seen in the United States in many years, with four Members of the National Assembly, including the Chairmen of the Committees on Foreign Relations and Economic Affairs. Attendees of the Roundtable discussion included leading businesspeople and senior U.S. Government officials.

Sudan’s Ambassador to the United States, H.E. Maowia Osman Khalid, co-hosted the event in cooperation with NUSACC and the Chamber’s counterpart in Sudan, the Federation of Sudanese Businessmen and Employers. Ambassador Khalid noted, “Sudan and the United States now have the potential to enter a new era in our commercial relationship. Sudan needs much of what America has to offer – including technology and expertise – and we thank NUSACC for helping to bring Sudan’s business opportunities to the attention of the Chamber’s member companies.”

In his welcoming remarks, NUSACC President & CEO David Hamod said, “There has been a great deal of misunderstanding in the U.S. – Sudan relationship over the years, and I am hopeful that we are now on a track that will lead to increased mutual benefits for both nations. Sudan has enormous potential, and our Chamber is grateful for the opportunity to help bring these commercial opportunities to light. I would also like to thank the exclusive sponsor of today’s Roundtable, GE, whose generous support made this event possible.”
