The article discusses trade relations between the U.S. and Middle East. It identifies possible reasons why Arab consumers are turning away from U.S. brands, leading to the loss of U.S. market share in the region. It presents forecasts for containerized trade between North America and the Middle East in 2006. It reveals that despite the slowing trade between the U.S. and the Middle East, U.S. container carriers remain bullish about the Arab market and are increasing capacity to accommodate projected trade growth.
