Message from the ABJ Executive Committee
Supporting Commerce; Enriching Lives
Saudi Arabia continues to be robust country to conduct business in; providing opportunities for American businesses to contribute distinctive expertise, innovation, resources and technologies the Kingdom needs to upgrade its industries and infrastructure while creating more meaningful employment for its growing youth population and boosting quality of life.
Since its inception, the American Business Group of Jeddah (ABJ) has strived to provide unique forums for American business people and Saudi entrepreneurs to constructively meet, get to know each other, build powerful friendships and cultivate impactful business relationships.
Intent: To build a resilient platform grounded on confidence, cultural understanding and mutual respect that nurtures existing and future business, expands trade and fosters a stronger alliance between our two countries. The ABJ promotes intent via networking and other social events; cultivating a shared sense of community and business interactions among its members and sponsors.
The ABJ's momentum and success is dependent on maintaining exceptional relationships with the Jeddah-based business community, continued financial support and wholehearted loyalty our members and corporate sponsors; as well as its strong relationship ongoing with the U.S. Consulate and Commercial Office in Jeddah. For that, we thank you all.
The ABJ Executive Committee remains committed to the promotion of effective communication between Americans living and working in Jeddah, those who visit Jeddah on business and Saudi and other business executives doing business or those entrepreneurs interested in pursuing business opportunities in the US or with American companies.
To help foster good communication, the ABJ sponsors General Membership Meetings, ABJ Networkers and ABJ Roundtable Meetings, in addition to various social events and the ABJ-BBG Annual Sports Challenge. The ABJ also maintains a Website and publishes the ABJ Newsletters and the ABJ Annual Directory.
We would encourage you all to take advantage of these forums and publications by attending as many events as your time permits and reading, contributing to and advertising in our publications.
The ABJ Executive Committee is excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. Through your active involvement and support, our organization will continue to grow and prosper and, in small ways, help its members and sponsors build a brighter future for everyone.
The Members of Your ABJ Executive Committee
