“This initiative will be the foundation to promote the social and economic security for the Arab societies. That is why it is important to cooperate with international organizations and bring together Arab and International thinkers and practitioners for the development of the strategy. Such involvement will ensure global influence and introduction,” stated Al-Khouri.

“This is a new model for developing Arab world’s economies to tackle global challenges. The UAE is putting its expertise to use to boost sustainable development in the Arab states,” Al-Khouri concluded.

The strategy will be presented in an international conference that will be hosted in Abu Dhabi on 16 & 17 December 2018. The outputs will be presented to the Arab Leaders at the Arab Summit scheduled in March 2019 in Tunisia.

The World Bank noted the importance of the strategy in paving the way for inclusive economic development opportunities in the Arab world. UN, UNDP and the World Bank support the initiative and CAEU for its work for comprehensive development and enhancement of cooperation between the Arab states.
