WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice President and Head of International Affairs Myron Brilliant issued the following statement today applauding the historic peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) this week.

“We applaud the U.S. Administration for their leadership in brokering the historic agreement between Israel and the UAE, which will have a major impact on the Middle East in many ways, including unlocking tremendous business potential between two critical innovative economies and creating new opportunities for trade and investment in the Middle East. The Chamber has long-supported building American business ties across the Middle East to advance economic growth and innovation, create partnerships, and promote intra-regional trade. This agreement highlights the potential for a more commercially connected region and will help expand ties between the private sector in these two important economies."
