visit and invest

Israeli President Isaac Herzog visited the UAE in late January, and revealed that the volume of Tel Aviv’s trade with Abu Dhabi is now more than one billion dollars.

And the Israeli newspaper “globes” revealed earlier – according to close sources – that Abu Dhabi will invest 10 billion dollars in Israeli companies.

The Wall Street Journal also reported that Israel and the UAE are speeding up security and intelligence cooperation efforts, following a series of attacks on Abu Dhabi by Tehran-backed militants in Yemen.

On December 13, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett met Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, on an official visit, the first of its kind for an Israeli prime minister to the UAE.

In September 2020, Israel and the UAE signed an agreement to normalize relations in Washington under the auspices of former US President Donald Trump.
