Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan received last night at the Emirates Palace Arab Ministers of Economy and heads of delegations to the 77th session of the Pan-Arab Economic and Social Council which started here this morning.



Sheikh Abdullah conveyed to the ministers the greetings of President H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai and General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.



Sheikh Abdullah exchanged views with the Arab ministers on the topics on the meeting's agenda and discussed with them ways to boost joint cooperation among Arab countries.



Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi, Economy Minister and Nancy Baker, Arab League's Assistant Secretary General for Social Affairs, detailed Sheikh Abdullah on the discussions made during the meeting's first day, as well as recommendations and resolutions likely to be passed by the ministers.



Sheikh Abdullah stressed the importance of the meeting and expressed the hope that it will come up with results that fulfil aspirations of the Arab peoples. He pointed out that Arab ministers are determined to reform economies of their respective countries and to achieve economic integration to confront all challenges.



"Removing obstacles hindering Pan Arab Free Trade Zone is an uphill task. However, it is important that all Arab countries should unify their stances towards the issues tackled by the World Trade Organisation and form a block that will develop into a powerful tool while negotiating such issues." Sheikha Lubna said the current meeting is considered the largest since the council's inception. "Arab countries are seeking to liberalise intra-Arab service trade and to reach a customs union," she added. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
