The Symposium was held at the start of UAE’s “China Week”, an event the country hopes to host annually.
The ECSSR listed some in-depth information on China week – and the Symposium – on its website:
Overview of the Symposium (Courtesy of the Symposium’s Program):
“UAE-China relations provide an inspiring model for relations between friendly countries because they are not only comprehensive, diverse, and not limited to a particular aspect, including political, economic, cultural, military, and defense dimensions, but there is also a strong political will to support these relations, contributing to the interests of the two nations.
The great economic and development potential of the United Arab Emirates and the great capabilities of China offer various opportunities for bilateral cooperation. At the same time, the political understanding between the two countries, embodied in identical visions of regional and international issues, makes them two active pillars in the efforts to maintain peace and security in the region and the world.
The continuous development of UAE-China relations, which have been translated into an increase in mutual trade and investment; and the development of bilateral cooperation in the areas of energy, infrastructure, trade, investment, and space, reiterates that these bilateral relations are ready for a new and more advanced stage. This new stage will reflect the aspirations of the leaders of the two countries to strengthen their comprehensive strategic partnership.”
