Building Economic and Cultural Bridges - 5:06
with Ahmad Chebbani, Chairman, American Arab Chamber of Commerce
Posted Feb 23, 2017
Nearly 3.5 million Americans are of Arab descent in the United States. Arab Americans live in all 50 states, but two thirds reside in 10 states with 550,000 living in Michigan. Since its inception in 1992, the American Arab Chamber of Commerce has grown to encompass a diverse local, national and international membership. The Chamber has become the largest American-Arab business organization in the United States, stimulating economic growth by building economic and cultural bridges locally, nationally, and across the globe. Domestically, the Chamber is committed to strengthening its members through various programs, events and seminars. Internationally, the Chamber has made tremendous strides to foster trade and establish relationships between the U.S. and Arab countries. Michigan's American-Arab business community has become one of the most economically affluent communities, and we believe our unwavering dedication to foster the economic viability of our members has contributed to this end.
