Pittsburgh Middle East Institute Program to Highlight Energy, Environment Links with Gulf States Oct. 13-14

A conference hosted Oct. 13-14 by the Pittsburgh Middle East Institute will bring together distinguished guests from the Persian Gulf States and corporate leaders from the Pittsburgh region to discuss innovations in energy sustainability and green technologies.

Titled "Building the Green City: Energy Sustainability and Green Technology," the conference will feature CNN and Newsweek’s Fareed Zakaria, and former Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill, as well as Omani Secretary-General Badr Hamad Hamood Albusaidi.

The conference builds on the momentum achieved by the recent Pittsburgh G-20 Summit in carrying out the PMEI's mission of “forging lasting ties between Pittsburgh and the Middle East" through dynamic business, educational, and cultural exchanges.

"If you’re considering business opportunities in the Middle East or are an avid follower of foreign policy news and events, you won’t want to miss this year’s extraordinary lineup," PMEI boasts.
