C3 Summit of 2012
The first C3 Summit conference was held last year in September, and the turnout was phenomenal. A total of 10 Arab countries were present at the conference. There were 400 registered attendees that included Ambassadors, Ministers of government, and members of the private sector. Featured speakers included a total of 82 business big-names, with a special speech from keynote speaker- former President Clinton. Themes of discussion weighed heavily on economic and financial growth in Arab countries. Opportunities for growth were discussed during the summit. One suggestion called for economic diversification in the Arab world, so that it is not only based in oil and natural resources. Another important subject of discussion was job creation, particularly through entrepreneurship.
C3 Summit of 2013
This year’s Summit will see attendance from over 50 organizations. Topics to be presented during the conference will have emphasis on Global trade, Security, Cross-Border/International Commerce and Women’s Rights in the current Islamic World. Discussions that deal directly with U.S and Arab business relationships will also be held in hopes of identifying growth and investment opportunities among both nations. The Summit of 2013 will be graced by the presence and presentations of major players in global business as well as in government, with a special presentation from keynote speaker Wael Fakharany- Regional Director of Google in Egypt and North Africa.
