Middle East Aerospace and Defense Trade Mission

Executive-Led Aerospace & Defense Trade Mission to the Middle East

The United States Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration (ITA), is organizing an Aerospace and Defense Trade Mission to the Middle East on November 6-11, 2022. This mission will be led by Arun Venkataraman, Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Global Markets. The purpose of the mission is to introduce U.S. companies to the aerospace and defense ecosystem in key Middle Eastern countries and assist delegate companies with finding business partners and exporting their products and services to the region.

Participating firms will gain market insight, make industry contacts, solidify business strategies, and advance specific projects, with the goal of increasing U.S. exports of products and services in the aerospace and defense sectors. The subsectors will depend on the nature of the market, potential demand, prospective government procurements, and other factors closer to the start of recruitment.

The mission will include customized one-on-one business appointments with pre-screened potential buyers, agents, distributors, and joint venture partners. It will also include meetings with central, state, and local government officials and industry leaders, as well as networking events. 

Recruitment and registration are closed! We hope you can join us next year.
