Mr. Wilder met with several business leaders, including Yusuf Mohammad, CEO of McWane Gulf, and Steven Bondy, Charge’ d’ Affairs and acting Ambassador to the UAE.

“Trips like these are a great chance to build good will,” said Mr. Wilder. “I also welcome any opportunity to meet potential clients and business partners and experience business life in another culture.”
