The Arab-British Chamber of Commerce (ABCC) chose Bandar Ali Reda as its Secretary General and CEO during its Winter Reception.

Reda was nominated for the position by the Board of Directors of the Union of Arab Chambers and approved by the Board of Directors of the ABCC.

During the 2018 Winter Reception, the ABCC received a number of ambassadors, dignitaries and executives of public and private sectors from the Arab world and Britain, at London's Pestana Chelsea Hotel.

ABCC’s Board of Directors also approved the appointment of Abdulsalam al-Idrissi as Deputy Secretary General. Idrissi thanked the Union and Chamber for their trust and support, noting that the appointment of the Secretary General and CEO will further contribute to enhance trade exchange between Britain and Arab countries.

Secretary General of the Union of Arab Chambers Khalid Hanafi thanked the British Chamber for its role and emphasized the active role of the Arab-British Chamber of Commerce. He added that the appointment of the Secretary-General and the new CEO is a continuation of the progress made by the Chamber to ensure prosperity and economic trade between Britain and Arab countries.

The Board of Directors of the Union of Arab Chambers approved the selection of Bandar bin Ali Reda, candidate of the Saudi Chambers Council, for the Arab-British Chamber after obtaining the majority of the votes.

The new Secretary-General enjoys high diplomatic relations given his position as commercial attaché to many Saudi embassies around the world, in addition to his extensive business experience.
