Visit focuses on expanding economic ties between the U.S., Algeria, and Morocco

WASHINGTON, D.C.—A U.S. Chamber of Commerce delegation is traveling to the North African countries of Algeria and Morocco this week in an effort to enhance trade ties with the U.S. business community. U.S. Chamber Executive Vice President and Head of International Affairs Myron Brilliant will lead the U.S. Chamber delegation, which will meet with senior government officials, local businesses, and leaders from American Chambers of Commerce in both countries to discuss new commercial and investment opportunities for U.S. companies operating in the region.

“American job creators see enormous investment and growth potential in the North Africa region, particularly in Algeria and Morocco,” said Brilliant. “The U.S. Chamber’s U.S.-Africa Business Center is leading the way to advance strong relationships with these nations, and during our visit we hope to make further progress toward improving the ease of doing business for U.S. companies in North Africa.”

Brilliant, along with U.S.-Africa Business Center President and U.S. Chamber Senior Vice President Scott Eisner, will begin the visit in Algeria before traveling to Morocco. The U.S. Chamber leaders will work to expand the investment and economic ties between the United States and the two nations.
