During the virtual meeting, His Excellency Mohammed Thani Al Rumaithi, Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Chamber, said that the Chamber is completely ready to provide all the necessary services to support the joint cooperation between the two sides in all sectors and on all levels, especially after signing the historic peace treaty with Israel. “This will boost economic cooperation and investment partnerships between the two countries, considering them as prominent economic powers in the Middle East,” he said.
The Abu Dhabi Chamber is the official representative of the private sector in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi with more than 100,000 member companies.
By signing the new agreement with Tel Aviv Chamber, both sides will work towards increasing business opportunities for the private sector; providing the necessary tools to attract regional and international investments; exchanging experiences; and offering the necessary training programs to boost the capabilities of their members in doing business.

Uriel Lynn, President of the Federation of the Israeli Chambers of Commerce noted that, “The agreement with Abu Dhabi’s Chamber of Commerce, the largest and leading Emirate in the UAE, is a significant milestone in the ongoing developing relationship between both parties. This important step paves the way for additional collaborations in various sectors. It is also a great opportunity to launch a platform for Israeli export to the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia".
