DCCI receives Iraqi/American Chamber
Director General of the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) Abdul Rahman Ghanim Al-Mutaiwee recently received the Vice President of the Iraqi/American Chamber of Commerce, Sabah Khesbak.
The meeting was attended by a member of the Iraqi/American Chamber Antoine Khammar. Al-Mutaiwee stated that DCCI is willing to offer the necessary help for the Iraqi/American Chamber to establish and develop relations in the Gulf Region.
When discussing the role DCCI has played in the Iraqi situation, Al-Mutaiwee mentioned the Iraqi Business Council, which was formed by DCCI as a way to help develop commercial and economic interests of regional and international companies in Iraq, as well as to help eliminate any worries and concerns businesses may have about setting up in Iraq. DCCI fully sponsored and facilitated the establishment of the Iraqi Business Council in Dubai as a way to help achieve that goal.
Khesbak expressed his appreciation for the role DCCI plays in improving the economic and commercial situation in Iraq to help the Iraqi people overcome these difficult times, by aiding in the rebuilding of Iraq through promoting investment opportunities amongst the local and international businesses based in the Gulf Region.
The Vice President discussed the establishment of the Chamber highlighting the need to bridge the gaps between the Arab World and the United States, beginning with the Iraqi/American relations in the shadow of the current political situation. Being the third Chamber which combines American and Iraqi commercial interests, the Iraqi/American Chamber is still in the early stages of establishment.
Khesbak has asked for DCCI's advice with matters concerning the policies to be adopted by the newly formed Chamber, as he mentioned that DCCI was named in the United States as one of the best Arab Chambers. — (menareport.com)
