Attended by HE Salem Rashid Al Owais, UAE’s Ambassador to Colombia; and HE Jaime Amin, the Ambassador of Colombia to the UAE, the meeting also highlighted the prospects of expansion of collaboration in terms of investment and development that serves mutual interests.

Underlining ADFD’s role in promoting sustainable development in Colombia through various projects, HE Al Suwaidi said: “This meeting is an ideal opportunity to expand the avenues of cooperation between the UAE and Columbia. In working closely with Columbia, we aim to accelerate sustainable growth, develop innovative solutions and give a strong momentum for development cooperation to better serve our mutual interests.”

Her Excellency Ramírez expressed gratitude for the UAE and ADFD for extending support to her country amid a battle against the COVID-19 pandemic.

They include eight early childhood centers set up on a budget of AED39 million, education and health centres, as well as small and medium projects across the country that will create jobs for local communities and improve their living standards.
