Significant moves in both diplomatic and economic relationships are already bearing fruit after the historic signing in September 2020 of the Abraham Accords to jointly normalize relations between Israel, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates. In the two years since the first signing, four additional Arab countries have signed on to the Accords. Moreover, other players in the region have gained the confidence needed to strengthen regional trade agreements and commercial ties. As one of the principal architects of the Accords, Robert Greenway, former deputy assistant to the president and senior director of Middle East and North Africa Affairs on the National Security Council, will share how the benefits derived from the Abraham Accords could provide future stability, security, and economic growth for the entire region.
