The strategy, which is based on the UAE Vision 2021, includes main objectives, most notably to achieve the mutual prosperity with partners by expanding the existing economic sectors and creating new promising sectors, so as to complement the role of the UAE diplomacy in building bridges of economic cooperation with other countries”.
