QUEEN ZAYNAB SEALS PARTNERSHIPS
WITH UAE & BEIRUT
In October 2017, Her Highness, Queen Zaynab met with United Arab Emirate’s Minister of Economy, His Excellency Sultan Bin Saeed Al Mansoori to formalize the beginning of international relations with the UAE Economic sector to improve economic and cultural relations between the United Arab Emirates and several African nations. The Bridge, under the patronage of Her Highness, Queen Zaynab is an African Arab organization formed to promote & improve cultural and international relations between Arab countries in the Middle East & Africa.
His Excellency, Sultan Bin Saeed Al Mansoori pledged his co-operation with Her Highness and relevant ministries to aid in (social and economic) developments of international and regional activities that will enhance and improve trade exchange and dealings between the Arab world and Africa.
The Queen officially began her partnership with Lebanon through the Governor of Beirut, Justice Ziad Chebib during a visit in Beirut last week. With an increasing number of Lebanese citizens residing in Nigeria, it is imperative to create sustainable initiatives to improve relations and create jobs. The Middle East and Africa have a long and sometimes sordid history that hasn't quite worked to the advantage of Africans. This partnership will create new economic opportunities that both continents can explore through cultural exchanges, breaking of social barriers and business opportunities.
