The US Importers Association, the Arab American Institute and the American State Offices Association, as well as member of the US government Department of State and Department of Commerce are some of the organizations that have been confirmed to attend and speak at AJEX 2003. The Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) and other regional US Chamber of Commerce, such as the Iraqi American Chamber of commerce will also be present.
The participation of Arab American organizations is also very important, and goes toward strengthening US – Arab trade and cultural ties.
