Dr. Sami bin Abdullah Al-Obaidi has been the chairman of the Council of Saudi Chambers (CSC) since June 2018. Prior to his appointment, Al-Obaidi was the vice president of the CSC.

On Thursday, Al-Obaidi held a meeting with the secretary-general and executive chairman of the Arab-British Chamber of Commerce (ABCC), Bandar Reda, and the president of the ABCC board of directors, Baroness Simon, as well as officials of the British Arab Chamber.

During the meeting, Al-Obaidi, who is currently visiting Britain, stressed the importance of investment partnerships and holding meetings between Saudi and British businessmen in order to invest in the promising opportunities of the two countries and to double the percentage of their trade. The meeting also discussed the outcomes of the Arab-British Economic Forum held on Wednesday.

Al-Obaidi is also the chairman of the board of directors of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Taif and a member of the board of directors of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage since 2017.

The CSC is the official federation for the 28 Saudi Chambers. It was formed by royal decree in March 1980, and headquartered in Riyadh.

The key role of the CSC is to serve the common interests of the Saudi Chambers, support the development of the private sector and enhance its role in national development.
