An Open Letter

Dear Friends,

As you may have heard or read, I have been bestowed the title of Ambassador to the United States by His Majesty the King, Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa. I am deeply honored and, frankly, a little humbled by the trust and confidence my nation has placed in me. It is a role I will cherish every minute of my tenure.


When I was appointed Economic Representative, in August 2003, the landscape of relations between the United States and Bahrain was quite different from what it is today as the US-Bahrain Free Trade Agreement was just taking shape.

I am very proud of the work we did to enhance economic (and personal) relations between our two nations. The friendships I have formed in my role as Economic Representative and the lasting relationships that have resulted are ones that I cherish and ones that will serve me well as I expand my duties beyond economic development.

The process of seeking common ground and understanding holds profound implications for us all. We have the power to enhance opportunities for both peoples and to reshape our fundamental understanding of what U.S.-Gulf partnerships can be. There are challenges and hard work ahead, to be sure, but I'm confident there is nothing we cannot overcome if we work together.

Of this I am certain, nowhere will I find a more welcoming host than the American people, nor a more inviting nation than the United States of America.

Today, the future looks very bright. I am eager to return to Washington to begin the next phase of my life. I look forward to greeting all of you soon.

Thank you for your friendship and support.

Sincerely,


Dr. Naser M. Al Belooshi
Ambassador
