Safety and Security Business Development Mission to Morocco, Algeria and Egypt

The United States Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration is organizing an Executive-led Business Development Mission to Morocco, Algeria and Egypt with an optional stop in Lebanon, March 4 12, 2015. The purpose of this mission is to help U.S. firms in the safety and security industry find business partners and sell products and services in North Africa. The targeted sector for participation in this Business Development Mission is safety and security, including U.S. based manufacturers of safety and security equipment, U.S. based providers of safety and security services, and U.S. trade associations promoting U.S. safety and security products and services.

The mission will help participating firms and associations gain market insights, make industry contacts, solidify business strategies, and advance specific projects, with the goal of increasing U.S. exports of products and services to Morocco, Algeria and Egypt. The mission will include one-on-one business appointments with pre-screened potential buyers, agents, distributors, and joint venture partners; meetings with state and local government officials and industry leaders; and networking events. Participating in an official U.S. industry delegation, rather than traveling to Morocco, Algeria and Egypt on their own, will enhance the companies’ ability to secure meetings in-country.

  • Expert briefings: Participants will hear first-hand from U.S. commercial officials about the opportunities and challenges in each market.
  • Business Matchmaking: Meet your export objectives through one-on-one meetings with foreign industry executives and government officials, pre-screened to match specific business objectives whether for representation, direct sales, or joint ventures in the local market.
