HIS EXCELLENCY ABDULLA AHMED AL SALEH, UNDERSECRETARY FOR FOREIGN TRADE, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES MINISTRY OF ECONOMY

SOUTH ARICA – UAE BUSINESS FORUM
In his opening remarks extended his sincere congratulations to President Cyril Ramaphosa upon his re-election as the President of South Africa.
"We are pleased to be here at the South Africa - UAE Business Forum, in connection with the UAE’s participation at this year’s Africa Trade Week. The UAE attaches great importance to this event, given South Africa’s status as a leading services destination, a regional manufacturing hub and the most industrialized country in Africa. As the African continent is witnessing an infrastructure boom, which is creating plenty of trade and investment opportunities, UAE businesses remain keen to explore partnerships with their South African counterparts through participation in such networking events. I would like to emphasize the UAE’s support for development projects undertaken by the South African government, especially in the field of infrastructure.” said His Excellency Abdulla Ahmed Al Saleh.
