Strengthening ties between Bulgaria and UAE

Specifying the forms of cooperation in the field of investment, digital economy, transport, high technology, energy, tourism and security will dominate today the discussion between Bulgaria’s PM Boyko Borissov and the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of the United Arab Emirates Mohammed Bin Zayed Al-Nahyan.

PM Borissov arrived for a working visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Saturday afternoon. Precisely a year ago, he visited the UAE’s capital, which was the first visit ever at this level in the history of Bulgaria's bilateral relations with the UAE. At the beginning of last year the two countries opened embassies, respectively in Abu Dhabi and Sofia.

The current meeting is indicative of the dynamic development of the Bulgarian-UAE relations and shows the common ambition for cooperation in a wide range of areas.

Bulgaria is now preparing for its participation at the upcoming EXPO 2020 World Expo in Dubai. The country will be presented there within the Mobility sub-theme, reflecting its strategic geographical position with regard to transport corridors and market access.
