The Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Belgrade organised a ceremony to mark the National Day of the UAE, which is being celebrated for the 52nd time.
“This year we are celebrating National Day under the slogan ‘Today for Tomorrow’. Since the unification on December 2, 1971, we have been in the process of major transformations at all levels. Take, for example, our economic development and the fact that we achieved a record growth in foreign trade exchanges, which during the first half of 2023 increased by 14.4 percent compared to last year,” said the UAE Charge d’Affaires in Serbia, Ibrahim Al Darmaki, in his address to the guests.
As he mentioned, the UAE strives to improve its position in the space industry sector, and that his country is working on finding solutions to environmental challenges.
The ceremony was attended by the US Ambassador Christopher Hill, Russian Ambassador Alexander Botsan-Kharchenko, Minister of Trade Tomislav Momirovic, as well as representatives of the diplomatic corps and the Islamic community.
