Last month, it was reported that the UAE will invest in various strategic sectors of Israel. The UAE has decided to establish a fund of $10 billion after a telephonic conversation between Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister and Sheik Mohamed bin Zayed, Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince.
The investment fund from the UAE is expected to support Israel in sectors including energy, manufacturing, water, space, healthcare and agritech. This will support the developmental initiatives of the country and also promote regional economic cooperation between the two countries. The investments for the fund are derived from institutions belonging to the government and private sectors.
