BBG Ambassador Series - HMA to Jordan Edward Oakden
Join us for the first instalment of our Ambassador Series for 2019 featuring Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Jordan, Edward Oakden CMG, and Her Majesty’s Trade Commissioner for the Middle East, Afghanistan & Pakistan, Simon Penney. They will speak about Jordan’s growth and opportunities as a geostrategic entry-point to markets in the Middle East, Asia, Europe and Africa, with free trade agreements reaching a billion consumers worldwide.
We are delighted to present the second instalment of our Ambassador Series featuring Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Iraq, Jon Wilks CMG. This is an exciting time for doing business in Iraq. Daesh has been territorially defeated and the security situation is stabilising; exports of goods and services are increasing and reached £0.5bn in 2017; UKEF entered the market in 2017 and has already completed £1bn of business which will double our exports.
