June 20-24 Oil and Gas Trade Mission to Turkey and Kazakhstan                          

The U.S. Commercial Service is encouraging U.S. companies to apply for participation in a Eurasian Oil and Gas Suppliers Trade Mission from June 20-24, 2011.  The trade mission will travel to Istanbul and Ankara, Turkey and Almaty, Kazakhstan.  This 2011 Executive led Oil and Gas Trade Mission offers U.S. suppliers of oil and gas equipment and services the chance to find partners and make sales to these two major energy markets. The two countries will play a strategic role in reducing Europe's traditional dependence on Russian oil and gas. Turkey, at the crossroads of Europe, and Kazakhstan, the key oil and gas player in Central Asia, are both strategically located in their respective regions and key U.S. allies.  

The U.S. Embassy's Commercial section in both Kazakhstan and Turkey will arrange one-on-one appointments based on participant needs & interests in each of three cities. Briefings, site visits, receptions/networking events, and possible legal presentations will also be offered. Applications will be accepted until COB April, 29, 2011.
