Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, UAE Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah in his opening remarks, the Arab world can realize its promise only if its people obtain the power to have their opinion heard and considered, attain jobs and justice. In a special message, Hon J.T.R. Mujuru, Vice President of Zimbabwe stated that 'our objective is to further strengthen our relationships with Arab countries.' H.E. Makhtoom Amin Faheem, Senior Minister of Commerce, Pakistan, highlighted the importance of trade relations of Pakistan with the United Arab Emirates and other economies in the Arab world.
