Chairman's Thank You Letter To Dr Afnan AlShuaiby

The Board and staff of the Joint Arab-British Chamber of Commerce express our sincere thanks to Dr Afnan AlShuaiby, whose term of office as Secretary General and Chief Executive Officer of the Chamber has come to an end on July 2018.

Dr Afnan AlShuaiby originally took up her post with the Chamber in July 2007 and has served the Chamber admirably since that date. We express our deep appreciation for everything that Dr Afnan has done over her years of service and thank her very much for her energy, determination, skills, knowledge and her charm in doing such a superb job for us.

She is a positive and brilliant example of a Saudi and Arab women’s leader. Dr. Afnan is a remarkable figure; she is not only recognized in the UK but throughout the US and many other countries.

The tremendous work Dr. AlShuaiby has undertaken whilst at the Chamber will, without a doubt, produce exceptional results for the Chamber well into the future.

It has been an honour to work with her and we extend our best wishes to her for her future endeavours.

Rt. Hon. Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean
