International Vision

 

Mr. Bahlaiwa is the Secretary General of the Saudi Committee for International Trade (CIT) at the Council of Saudi Chambers. In this capacity he travels around the world delivering speeches and arranging conferences about Saudi Arabia: its economy, culture and traditions and it's leadership role in the Arab World:


"I contribute by speaking internationally about all the good things in this country: giving people the correct image of the Kingdom; enlightening people about what is going on in Saudi Arabia and telling them about those matters for which they might have doubts or do not know."


Saudi Arabia is in the middle of the world: the distances from the West and from the East are almost the same giving it a window on both worlds. This strategic location and the leadership role the Kingdom has in the Mulsim World are strong points for future investors - not something to be feared.


Mr. Bahlaiwa's initial career was in business.


Earlier in his career from 1983 to 1989, he worked with the Saudi Industrial Development Fund as a technical analyst in the Projects, Portfolios and Electric Utilities Departments. From 1997 to 1999 he was General Manager of Saudi Company for Manufacturing Carpet Materials (Mattex) and prior to this from 1990 to 1996, he was the Vice President of Sale and Marketing at the saudi Industrial Export Company. His introduction to the world of Public affairs was as the Assistant Secretary General for Foreign Affairs for the Council of Saudi Chambers.


"When I came back from studying in the US my ambition was to become a leader in industry. I moved to Jubail During the Gulf War and became a plant manager and it taught me a lot: it isn't so easy to take a position; you have to earn it. I went to another company in a lower position and worked my way up to Vice President level. In the process i developed an international outlook and gained exposure to public affairs through the Council of Chambers. I love the concept of thinking Globally and acting Locally. By following that I became linked up all over the world. I always consider myself an Ambassador of Saudi Arabia and that makes me proud.
I always feel proud when I serve my country."
