Cultivating Business among New Jersey, the U.A.E., and Israel

Presented by the U.S.-U.A.E. Business Council, Choose New Jersey, and the New Jersey-
Israel Commission

The U.S.-U.A.E. Business Council​, Choose New Jersey, and the New Jersey Israel Commission are pleased to invite you to attend a conversation ​at 2 PM ET on Wednesday, March 24th about emerging business opportunities among New Jersey, the U.A.E., and Israel. This virtual discussion will focus on new business, trade, and investment avenues in the wake of the historic Abraham Accords between Israel and the U.A.E.

The ​Abraham Accords normalized diplomatic, trade, and cultural ties between the U.A.E. and Israel in September of 2020. Significant new opportunities in the areas of healthcare, energy, high-tech, and logistics are quickly being consummated.

This webinar will provide the audience with an introduction to the U.A.E. in the region, including its strong political, security, and economic ties with the United States as well as its burgeoning ties with Israel. There have been significant opportunities for the U.S., U.A.E., and Israel to collaborate in many different areas​, from politics and security to business and culture. Speakers will provide insights on the U.A.E.’s business climate and possibilities for New Jersey and Israeli businesses to leverage the U.A.E.’s strategic location, world-class infrastructure, ease of doing business, quality of life, and culture of tolerance to serve as an export market and regional business hub.

​This webinar will also address the drivers of New Jersey’s economy and lay the groundwork for closer future engagements between the U.A.E., Israel, and the Garden State.

Please contact Ally Anderson at [email protected] in advance of the webinar should you have any questions, and please see below to register.
