Exclusive: Middle East Envoy Aryeh Lightstone Discusses Launch of Women’s Economic Network

Lightstone: “I’d be betting on the Abraham Accords countries, and I’d be betting on women entrepreneurship and leadership in those countries”

Aryeh Lightstone, senior adviser to US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, was recently appointed special envoy for economic normalization, with responsibility to represent US interests in normalizing economic relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan, Kosovo, and Morocco. Special Envoy Lightstone spoke with The Media Line’s Felice Friedson about the future of the Abraham Accords under a new US administration, the launching of a new business network bringing together women entrepreneurs in the Abraham Accord nations and beyond, and the role of the Abraham Fund in supporting economic normalization in the region.
