C3 US-Arab Business & Healthcare Summit 2016

> Scheduled to take place on the heels of the 71st U.N. General Assembly in New York, on September 26th (Business) and September 27th (Healthcare), the C3 Summits assemble experts with real world experience and practical knowledge on how companies can navigate the risks and take actions to create positive outcomes. Opportunities and challenges have long provided headlines for the socio-economic relationships between the United States and the countries in the Middle East. This has never been truer than it is today. Saudi Vision 2030, the 2020 World Expo in Dubai, the GCC rail initiative and the wealth of available human capital that is waiting to be empowered across the region present huge opportunities for US companies looking to enter or expand in the Middle East. However, challenges posed by ISIS, Brexit, the impact of health on the economy and concerns about cyber and energy security are challenges that cannot be ignored. Each summit will feature a full-day lineup of public and private sector experts to address the opportunities and most pressing challenges surrounding the complex, yet highly valuable relationships between the U.S. and MENA. These events provide participants the platform necessary to drive the collaboration, innovation, and partnerships required for organizational success across all boundaries. >
