Khush180x180

Khush Choksy is vice president for Turkey and Middle East Affairs at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. He directs the development and implementation of policies and programs that promote U.S. trade and investment with markets in the region. Choksy leads a team of program and policy experts who work closely with Chamber member companies and government leaders to broaden commercial relationships between the United States and the region.

Choksy’s responsibilities include oversight of seven programs in the Turkey and Middle East region: the Middle East Commercial Center, the U.S.-Bahrain Business Council, the U.S.-Egypt Business Council, the U.S.-GCC Business Initiative, the U.S.-Iraq Business Initiative, the U.S.-Israel Business Initiative, and the U.S.-Turkey Business Council.

Previously, Choksy was the Chamber’s senior director for the Middle East, where he expanded the membership of the U.S.-Egypt Business Council from 6 to 50 members, relaunched the U.S.-Bahrain Business Council, and implemented a strategic plan to expand the Chamber’s scope and impact in the region.

Before joining the Chamber, Choksy was a director at Chemonics International. There he led teams developing economic ties between the United States and the Middle East. He lived and worked in Jordan for seven years, establishing relations with private and public sector leaders at a critical time in the U.S.-Middle East relationship. He also worked in India where he oversaw pioneering U.S. government and World Bank-funded efforts to help liberalize India’s economy. His work in India led to policy reforms that enabled foreign companies to invest in Indian firms through stronger capital markets and intellectual property protection. Prior to that, Choksy worked for the Parsons Corporation, a large engineering and management services firm.

Choksy’s thought leadership includes presentations at international forums on business reform and U.S. trade and financial sector investment in emerging markets.

Choksy received his M.B.A. in strategic management from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and his B.A., magna cum laude, from Hamilton College. He lives with his wife and daughter in Chevy Chase, Maryland.
