“The Ambassador Partnership regards the Middle East and South Asia as an important region, and we are looking forward to working with the private and government sectors to explore ways that promote regional economic cooperation, corporate diplomacy and dispute resolution,” said James Watt CVO, who served as the British Ambassador to Egypt, Lebanon and Jordan. “We are pleased to have Ambassador Javed Malik as our regional director who has extensive experience of the region both as an Ambassador and in the private sector.”
