About The Accords

The signing of the Abraham Accords ushered in a transformation in the relationship between Israel and the world’s Arab nations. With the United States’ strong bi-partisan support, over the course of four short months, between August and December 2020, four countries followed Egypt and Jordan’s bold leadership and moved to initiate the diplomatic process to normalize bilateral ties with Israel. In signing these agreements, the United States, the UAE, Bahrain, and Israel, shortly followed by Kosovo, Sudan, and Morocco, signaled a new era of warm peace and prosperity with unlimited economic opportunities.

The Accords provide the pathway to the end of the Arab-Israeli conflict and a future of peace, tolerance, and opportunity in the Middle East and around the world. They also represent a new regional chapter with a shared vision for economic prosperity. As commercial ties grow, so will the strength of the bonds between the countries and their people. With limitless opportunity, the Abraham Accords could create as much as 4 million new jobs and $1 trillion in new economic activity in the coming decade and in the near term helping the region recover from the global pandemic.

The Abraham Accords serve as the foundation for a peace process in the Middle East by demonstrating the tangible benefits of interpersonal ties, trade, commerce, and mutual cooperation. This effort seizes the historic opportunity to unleash the Middle East’s potential, keep America safe, and help the region turn the page on a generation of conflict and instability toward a new era of multilateral cooperation.
