posted on 03/12/2003: 637 views


The first meeting of the new UAE All-Party Parliamentary Group was held in the British Parliament on December 1. Its main aim is to strengthen links between the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom. Over 40 parliamentarians have already expressed an interest in participating in its activities. The newly-elected Chairman of the Group is Kevan Jones, a Member of Parliament for Britain's governing Labour Party, while the two Vice-Chairmen are Hugo Swire, a Conservative MP, and John Thurso, a Liberal Democrat MP. Khalid Mahmood, another Labour MP who has strong links with the UAE, was elected Secretary.



Participants in the meeting called to establish the Group were addressed by Dr Rosemary Hollis, Head of the Middle East Programme at London's Royal Institute of International Affairs. She spoke about the historic links between the UAE and the UK, the development and diversification of the UAE's economy, and the important role that the UAE plays in the region. After the meeting, a number of the Parliamentarians attended a reception given by the UAE Embassy in London at the Grosvenor House Hotel to mark the occasion of the UAE's National Day.



Speaking after the meeting, the Group's Chairman, Kevan Jones MP, said: "The formation of this Group sends a strong signal that British politicians want to build on the UK's excellent relations with the United Arab Emirates. The UAE is a success story which British Parliamentarians want to learn more about. We greatly look forward to doing so in the years ahead." The Group hopes to send a delegation to the UAE next year.
