On June 26th, the MENA initiative will hold its first public event, and we’re excited to be hosting Under Secretary of State Bob Hormats. The unfolding political events in Egypt make this an incredibly dynamic time throughout the Middle East and North Africa. U/S Hormats has just returned from a trip to Tunisia and his speech will come only a few short days after the Presidential elections in Egypt. There couldn’t be a more important time to hear about the Administration’s economic strategy for this new Middle East. I hope that you can join us. RSVP HERE
Please join NDN and the New Policy Institute at noon on Tuesday, June 26th, as we host Robert Hormats, Under Secretary of State for Economic, Energy, and Agricultural Affairs. In light of recent political turmoil in Egypt and ongoing economic challenges in North Africa, Under Secretary Hormats will be outlining the urgent need to push forward a strategy for the Middle East and North Africa which is built on economic growth, liberalization, and entrepreneurship.
This will be the first public event hosted by NDN’s recently launched MENA Initiative, a project dedicated to supporting the work of building new and powerful relationships with the 300 million people throughout the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), helping them develop their economies, institutions, and human capital in ways that can empower them to move toward more open, prosperous, and egalitarian societies.
