U.S. Corporate Leadership Amidst the Refugee Crisis: A View from Jordan
BY Ziad Haider, Special Representative for Commercial and Business Affairs

Earlier this month, I had the privilege of leading a ten-member U.S. business delegation to Jordan representing a broad array of sectors, including infrastructure, consumer goods, financial services, and informational technology. The objective of the trip was to expand trade and investment ties with a key strategic partner in the Middle East while finding ways to help employ and integrate Jordan’s refugee population in the face of a global humanitarian crisis. The delegation was an extension of my office’s mandate at the State Department to promote U.S. commercial interests, while executing on the White House Call to Action for Private Sector Engagement on the Refugee Crisis to which over 60 leading U.S. firms have already responded.

We began our meetings in Amman with the Prime Minister followed by the Minister of Trade, Chair of the Jordanian Investment Commission, the Royal Court Director of Investment, as well as industry leaders and key business associations. The message we consistently received was that U.S. companies not only have unique commercial opportunities in Jordan building on the success of the U.S.-Jordan Free Trade Agreement (FTA) and Jordan’s potential as a regional hub but also that U.S. private sector engagement is key to helping Jordan cope with the strain caused by 16 percent unemployment and the inflow of hundreds of thousands of refugees.

Mt. Fuji and the Moon
I drove down to the mountain side of Shizuoka prefecture and hiked for an hour or so to capture this shot today. It was worth the efforts but I realized I need to do some exercises to beef myself up as I could walk much faster on trails last year.
今日は静岡の山岳地帯までドライブして久しぶりに登山しました。すっかり体力が衰えていたので近所の杓子山あたりで鍛えなおそうかと思いました・・・
