Shahid Amin (Former Ambassador): Pakistan and United Arab Emirates have been enjoying strong bilateral relations since UAE came into being in 1971. The founder of UAE, H.H. Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan was keen to strengthen its relations with Pakistan. The people of UAE stood with the government of Pakistan in every critical time and likewise Islamabad also supported the UAE in different fields of life. Moreover, the strings of brotherhood are deeply entrenched in the economic structure of both nations. The UAE has become a hub of investment, exports, technologies, tourism and renewable energies and a large number of Pakistanis are contributing to the UAE’s economic boom. In Pakistan, UAE surely has encouraged investment and helped in greater trade and commerce activities. UAE is one of the largest investors in Pakistan but bilateral trade has been steadily growing over the years and people-to-people contacts are constantly on the increase.
