  • 16 February 2014

The bulletin of the Emirates Centre for Strategic Studies and Research (ECSSR) has highlighted "the keenness of the U.A.E., since the formation of the federation in 1971, to promote openness to the world through the diversification of external routes and not to be limited to certain countries, which has contributed to the establishment of strong and effective Emirati relations with most countries of the world." In an editorial entitled: "Mohamed bin Zayed and boosting openness to the world", the ECSSR daily bulletin, Akhbar Al Sa'a (News of the Hour), said that this comes in the context of the visit of His Highness General Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the U.A.E. Armed Forces, to the East Asia region, to both Japan and South Korea, on the 25th of February.

During the visit, His Highness will discuss friendship and cooperation relations and ways of boosting them to serve the common interests of the three countries with senior officials of the two countries.

The bulletin added that the tour of Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed to both Japan and South Korea clearly reflects the care shown by the U.A.E. to be open to the outside world and view the experiences of successful development in the world, taking advantage of them in supporting the national economy and development plans in the country.

The editorial said that the visit to the two countries is of significant importance to the U.A.E. which is moving successfully towards building an outstanding developmental experience to be one of the best countries in the world according to the "U.A.E. Vision 2021".

"Thanks to the numerous visits and trade missions to various continents of the world, the U.A.E. has been able to occupy an internationally advanced position on the global investment map through owning stakes in international companies and important economic sectors, and also become one of the top global destinations for investment, a financial centre and an important link between the Middle East and the West.'' the ECSSR bulletin concluded.
