Christian Taulbee, recently embarked to the Middle East to meet with families interested in the EB-5 program. The trip was about a week long, from February 9 to February 17. It included the following locations:
In Dubai, Christian stayed at the Taj Dubai with a view of the Burj Khalifa, while meeting with families from Egypt, Lebanon, Pakistan, India, Sudan, and more.
In Abu Dhabi, he met with at least a dozen families, who predominately are looking to move to the United States for the betterment of their next generation. Over 40% of the families we work with from around the world do not engage with the EB-5 program for themselves. They are doing it for their children.
While at Muscat, Christian enjoyed the magnificent views of the Gulf of Oman and the Hajjar Mountains outside of sharing the benefits of the American economy with families in Muscat – some of whom have called Oman home for over 30 years.
In Bahrain, Christian caught a glimpse of the astonishing Bahrain World Trade Center while meeting with entrepreneurs looking to move to America to further expand their businesses and economic opportunities.
Kuwait City was one of the best stops on the trip. With the Kuwaiti economy so reliant on oil prices, recent market trends have led local families to consider moving to the United States in the next chapters of their lives.
Lastly, Qatar. This country, and specifically the city of Doha, is practically a home away from home for our office. Christian enjoyed meeting with the families and learning their stories.
