The minister highlighted that there was huge potential for cooperation between the two countries in the field of renewable energy, agriculture, textile meat of bovine animals, petroleum oils, and hospitality sectors.

He highlighted that the volume of total trade between the two countries stood at $10,033.05 million in FY-2022 in which export to UAE stood at $1,369.83 million and imports at $8,663.22 million in FY 21-22, which did not match the actual potential of both countries and needs to be increased.
