SEDC staff has been enjoying a successful trip to Abu Dhabi. Below are snapshots of their trip so far:
On their first day, SEDC and Saratoga County Chamber staff met with AmCham of Abu Dhabi at their offices (see www.amchamabudhabi.org). Their Board Chairman, Executive Director and Board Officers engaged in conversation with us regarding companies doing business in Abu Dhabi and how to develop partnerships. Very good advice was given, and suggestions regarding ways to build relationships between our organizations were shared.
Masdar City in Abu Dhabihosted the entire delegation from Saratoga County today. The group learned how one of the most sustainable communities on the planet was conceived and moved to reality. The three hour visit included presentations and tours of the community….Even a ride for everyone in driver-less cars!
They also traveled to the oasis city of Al Ain to understand the history of Abu Dhabi, with enlightening visits to the National Museum, Shiek Zayed’s home museum and the original Oasis that was responsible for the growth of Al Ain.
