The White House announced Sunday that the Trump administration will release part of its Israeli-Palestinian peace plan on June 25 and June 26 in Bahrain.
The “Peace to Prosperity” workshop will focus heavily on improving the economic prosperity of the Palestinian people and the region. World leaders, including government officials, business leaders, and civil leaders will be there to share their ideas and discuss support for potential economic investments that could be made possible by a peace agreement.
“I look forward to these important discussions about a vision that will offer Palestinians exciting new opportunities to realize their full potential. This workshop will engage leaders from across the entire Middle East to promote economic growth and opportunity for the people in this important region,” said United States Secretary of the Treasury Steven T. Mnuchin.
If implemented, the White House said, the peace plan has the potential to “radically transform” lives in the region through the development of human capital, rapid private-sector growth, and enhancements to economic governance.
“The ‘Peace to Prosperity’ workshop underscores the close strategic partnership between the Kingdom of Bahrain and the United States as well as the strong and shared interest in creating thriving economic opportunities that benefit the region,” stated Bahrain Minister of Finance and National Economy Shaikh Salman bin Khalifa Al Khalifa.
Jared Kushner, Senior Adviser to President Donald Trump, praised Bahrain on Sunday for hosting the workshop.
