On 11 January, the National Union of Mauritanian Employers (UNPM) and the Federation of UAE Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FCCI) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU), as part of the Mauritanian national day at Expo 2020 Dubai, and in the presence of the Prime Minister, Mr. Mohamed Bilal Massoud.

Today's agreement was signed on the Mauritanian side by the UNPM President, Mr. Mohamed Zein El Abidine Ould Cheikh Ahmed, and the Emirati side by the FCCI Secretary-General, Mr. Humaid Mohammed bin Salem.

The same agreement aims at broadening the scope of investment and business opportunities, especially in the areas of trade, technology transfer, services, and industry. The MoU will open more prospects for economic and social cooperation between the private sector in the two countries.

On this occasion, Mr. Cheikh Ahmed said that the Dubai Expo 2020 business forum constitutes a new step toward strengthening interactivity and exchanges between employers' organizations to make them up to the excellent relations between the two brotherly countries on all levels.


The UNPM boss added that energy, fisheries, trade, tourism, agriculture, and livestock would become the real issues and fields of exchange between economic actors in the two countries.

"We must all intensify efforts to achieve tangible results in these areas and strengthen investment and trade to promote productive sectors and absorb the labor force," as the UNPM President put it.
