Event Summary:  
 
Bahrain, Jordan, Morocco, and Oman have established Free Trade Agreements with the United States, generating additional export opportunities by reducing barriers to market entry and creating a more stable, transparent trade environment for U.S. companies.

On September 25th, MENACA is bringing Embassy officials and regional experts together in Chicago for an interactive panel on business opportunities in these four countries. Those who participate will also have the opportunity to schedule one-on-one time with panelists to gain further perspectives on their specific industry and discuss company-specific considerations.
