Borissov visits UAE

The prospects for intensifying bilateral cooperation were the key focus of discussions during the meeting of Prime Minister Boyko Borissov with Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces. PM Borisov, who arrived in the United Arab Emirates last night, is paying the first visit at such level in the bilateral relations history.

The Bulgarian prime minister explicitly emphasied the development of trade and economic ties and investments, where according to him there is serious untapped potential. He underlined that good opportunities could be sought through intensifying the work of the intergovernmental joint commission on economic cooperation. He also outlined the high tech and innovation as promising areas for successful cooperation.

It is important to further develop the political dialogue in order to create premises for further fruitful cooperation, since there are already permanent diplomatic representations in both capitals, Borissov opined. The embassies in Abu Dhabi and Sofia were opened in the beginning of this year.

Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan accented on the strategic interests of his country in the field of economy, agriculture, construction, technology and the military industry, and put special focus on the transport corridors that Borisov is negotiating with other Balkan countries.
