Wednesday, 19 August 2020, Berlin, Representation of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen: The Plenipotentiary of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen to the German Federal Government, State Counsellor Dr. Olaf Joachim, received the Ambassador of the United Arab Emirates, Hafsa Abdulla Mohamed Sharif Al Ulama, at the Bremen representation in Berlin.
The ambassador’s inaugural visit to the state representation of the two-city state focused on the political and economic ties between the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen and the United Arab Emirates. There are currently around 90 Bremen companies that maintain contacts in both countries, trade or have branches.
Ambassador Al Ulama and the Plenipotentiary agreed that opportunities for future economic cooperation and trade lie above all in the fields of ports, logistics, renewable energies, aerospace and aviation. In this context, the ambassador also pointed out that in mid-July the United Arab Emirates became the first Arab country ever to send a probe into space as part of its Mars mission “Hope“.
In addition to current political topics such as the effects of the COVID 19 pandemic, the situation on the Arabian Peninsula and in the Middle East, the recent diplomatic rapprochement between the Emirates and Israel, the “direct neighbourhood policy” was also discussed in Hiroshimastraße in Berlin-Tiergarten.
