WAM WASHINGTON, DC, July 6th, 2013 - The Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in the United States has hosted a delegation from Abu Dhabi University's (ADU) International Business Management Course in Washington, DC and New York this week to explore economic, social, political, and cultural issues that result from globalization, partnerships and collaboration.

UAE diplomats held a roundtable talk with the students over lunch at the embassy discussing ongoing public diplomacy program initiatives to inform Americans on the deep UAE-US bilateral relationship and improving on positive trade relations between the two countries.

While in Washington, the students along with their accompanying professors met with university and business leaders to discuss growing commercial and educational ties between the United States and UAE, and to gain a wider perspective on theories and practices of international management.

The student delegation attended discussions at George Washington University exploring various programs and opportunities for collaboration. During their stay in Washington, the students and their professors participated in briefings at Lockhead Martin, the U.S.-UAE Business Council and were hosted for a day of tours and lectures at Children's National Medical Center.

Children's National Medical Center doctors and administrators introduced the ADU students to the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation, experiencing first-hand how utilizing proven business methodologies through focused leadership and promoting creativity, discovery and invention, the institute is developing innovations that will allow children to live longer, healthier lives.

At Children's National Medical Center the delegation was joined by five Khalifa University students from the UAE currently interning for the summer at the hospital.

In addition to their extensive schedule of meetings and briefings, the ADU students and their professors had the opportunity to tour several prominent US landmarks and institutions, such as the Library of Congress, and Capitol Hill in Washington, DC and Wall Street in New York City.

The visiting ADU students made time in their busy schedule to volunteer at Martha's Table, a Washington, DC based organization that deals with the immediate effects of poverty and finds long-term solutions with education, nutrition and family support services.
