Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The United States Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration (ITA), with support from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and organizers of the Saudi-American Healthcare Forum (SAHF) is organizing a Healthcare Technology & Hospital Information Services Trade Mission to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Kuwait from April 23- 28, 2016. The purpose of the mission is to introduce U.S. firms to the rapidly expanding healthcare sectors in these two countries and to assist U.S. companies in pursuing opportunities in this sector. The mission is designed for U.S. companies and international hospital groups providing hospital operation and management services, hospital information systems, and eHealth solutions. The mission also will assist U.S. companies already doing business in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait to expand their footprint. Target sectors holding high potential for U.S companies include: Hospital operation and management, healthcare training and staffing services, healthcare education, and health information systems and informatics (e.g., electronic health records). The mission is timed to take place during the Saudi-American Healthcare Forum (SAHF) on April 25-27, 2016. The SAHF is an exclusive event dedicated to building new relationships, fostering existing partnerships, and exchanging best practices between the United States and the Middle East. The 2015 forum attracted over 1,000 attendees intent on promoting healthcare diplomacy through bilateral and international research, technology development, and education and training. Approximately 50 U.S. companies and organizations attended the event. Additional information about the SAHF can be found here: http://sahf15.com/. Supported by American industry participants and the U.S. Embassy, the 2016 SAHF will showcase the ongoing health-related cooperation between the U.S. Government and Saudi healthcare counterparts. The U.S. trade mission participants will be highlighted at the SAHF through speaking roles designed to elevate their companies' visibility as thought leaders in the field of healthcare innovation. Trade mission participants also will have free access to all seminars offered at the SAHF, if they wish to participate. Additionally, through customized meetings organized by the U.S. Commercial Service, trade mission participants will gain access to top level Saudi health decision makers to gain exposure they would not otherwise be able to achieve on their own. The mission will help participating U.S. firms and associations/ organizations gain market insights, make industry and government contacts, solidify business strategies and advance specific projects with the goal of increasing U.S. healthcare services exports. The trade mission will start in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, where participants will receive market briefings from U.S. Commercial Service and industry experts, hold one-on-one business meetings, meet with Saudi government officials and organizations, and participate in networking events. Delegates will be invited to participate in the SAHF. Following the SAHF, trade mission participants will travel to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and then to Kuwait, where they will have additional opportunities to meet with key contacts and decision makers. Participating firms may also wish to remain in Riyadh, or if the firm decides to send two participants on the mission, one representative can remain in Riyadh, rather than continue to Jeddah, to participate in SAHF seminars. Participating in an official U.S. industry delegation, rather than traveling on their own, will enhance the companies' abilities to identify opportunities in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.

Point Blue's current Authorization is effective until January 30, 2016, and authorizes the incidental harassment, by Level B harassment only, of approximately 9,871 California sea lions (Zalophus californianus). Current environmental conditions in the Pacific Ocean offshore Californiawhich researchers have attributed to an impending El Nino eventhave contributed to unprecedented numbers of California sea lions hauled out in areas where Point Blue conducts surveys and maintains critical infrastructure. As such, Point Blue has requested a modification to their current Authorization to increase the number of authorized take for California sea lions to continue critical operations and research. Per the Marine Mammal Protection Act, we are requesting comments on our proposal to revise the Authorization to Point Blue to incidentally harass, by Level B harassment only, a total of 44,871 California sea lions.
