Sharjah Chamber Calls for Enhancing Arab Food Security    11/20/2017

Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry has stressed the need to make huge efforts and activate cooperation between the private and the government sectors to invest in agricultural lands in various Arab countries including Mauritania in order to enhance Arab food security.

Sharjah Chamber called for providing technical and financial support and activating specialized authorities’ roles and making laws and legislation needed to enhance investment in the food sectors, and it stressed the provision of incentives and facilities for the private sector, in addition to solving the root causes of impediments in livestock and agricultural development and all that’s related to the food industries, and to invest the best way possible in natural resources and develop technical capabilities.

This came in the opening speech given by HE Abdullah Sultan Al Oweis, Chairman of the Board, at the “Livestock Investment Forum” held on Monday at the Conference Palace in In the capital of the Islamic Republic of Mauritania Nouakchott.

The forum, organized by the Arab Organization for Agricultural Investment and Development in partnership with the Ministry of Veterinary Medicine and the Federation of Chambers of GCC states, was attended by HE Yahya Ould Hademine, Prime Minister of Mauritania, patron of the Forum, HE Mr. Mokhtar Ould Ajay, Minister of Economy and Finance of Mauritania, HE Eissa Al Kalbani, UAE’s envoy to Mauritania, HE Mohammed bin Obaid Al Mazrouei, Chairman of the Arab Organization for Agricultural Investment and Development, HE Abdul Rahim Hassan Naqi, Secretary General of GCC Chambers, Dr. Fatem Bint Esweina, the Minister of Veterinary Medicine of Mauritania, and HE Mohamedou Ould Mohamed Mahmoud, President of Mauritania Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (CCIAM), in addition to more than 100 businessmen and investors from Arab countries.

Al Oweis said: "The Islamic Republic of Mauritania is an authentic country with its honorable cultural components, and it has always been a brotherly and good friend of the UAE through a long history, witnessing more growth and development every day as shown by our strategic partnership in Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry with this important investment forum.

Al Oweis conveyed His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah’s greetings to the participants of the forum and His Highness’s wishes for the forum to achieve the desired goals. Al Oweis pointed out Sheikh Sultan’s initiatives for Mauritania are plenty including his recent support to establish a headquarters for the Arabic language in Nouakchott.

Al Oweis added that thanks to these strong ties between the UAE and Mauritania and in line with the wise policy of the UAE to achieve Arab integration at all levels and contribute to the development and enhancement of economic cooperation between our two brotherly countries, Sharjah Chamber is keen to take part in this forum and explore the opportunities to invest in the vital livestock sector, which is closely linked to Arab food security.
