Dow Executive Vice President James Fitterling joins U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker and representatives from more than 20 U.S. businesses on a trade mission to the Middle East. The visit is focused on developing commercial opportunities for U.S. companies in the United Arab Emirates, The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Qatar.  The mission takes place March 8-14, 2014.
 
“Burgeoning growth and development in each of these countries offers significant opportunities in the energy, water, transportation and infrastructure sectors, which are ideal for Dow solutions and innovations.” said Fitterling.
 
“As the country’s Chief Commercial Advocate, a key part of my job is to promote trade and investment and to help open up markets for U.S. businesses like Dow,” said U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker. “The three countries we are visiting on our trade mission to the Gulf Region are among the top 50 export markets for the United States.
 
Since the launch of the National Export Initiative in 2010, exports have increased 111% to the United Arab Emirates, 65% to Saudi Arabia, and 57% to Qatar. Clearly, the Gulf region is a critical area of focus for our nation and its businesses.”
 
Dow’s business presence in the Middle East began nearly 40 years ago. Since then, Dow has built a vibrant and growing commercial, manufacturing and operational presence throughout the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey, delivering innovative solutions designed to address the region’s unique needs.
