AmCham’s Energy Committee Launched in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia
The Energy Committee, launched on June 14 by the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) Saudi Arabia, is committed to promoting awareness and sharing best practices as part of Saudi Arabia's efforts to achieve green energy objectives.
The Energy Committee's activities will be in line with the goals of Vision 2030 and with the Kingdom's mission to attain a net-zero target by 2060.
The Kingdom's investment in renewable energy is generating new opportunities for U.S. and Saudi businesses and encouraging the longstanding relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia within the energy sector.
During the event that saw the launch of the new Energy Committee, the Consul General David Edginton of the U.S. Consulate General in Dhahran said:
"The work we do together to support American companies will have a tremendous impact on the profitability of each of these companies.
More importantly, it will provide jobs for thousands of American and Saudi workers both here in the Kingdom and in the U.S. This is where the work of AmChamKSA, one of the largest bilateral trade associations in the Kingdom promoting trade and investment between our two countries, comes in."
Keynote speakers included Ebubekir Koyuncu, CEO of Air Products Qudra and Chair of the Energy Committee; and Jesse M. Lapierre, Vice President of the American Chamber of Commerce Saudi Arabia's Eastern Province Chapter.
The AmCham Saudi Arabia Energy Committee is sponsored by Air Products Qudra. Air Products Qudra's mission is to bring world-class technology, on-site solutions, and operational leadership to large-scale energy and environmental projects throughout the Middle East.
