The workshop created a platform for experts from both countries to share their experience and expertise in international development. They investigated areas for joint collaboration. Both parties are committed to turning these discussions into concrete outcomes in the future and to continue to work together to share practices and harmonise working in priority countries.

"The success of this workshop is a testament to the sound overall cooperation between the UAE and the UK", said Dr Saeed Al Shamsi, Assistant Foreign Minister for International Organisations, afterwards."

"I am pleased to be in Abu Dhabi. The UK recognises the UAE as an important aid donor. We are on the threshold of a new era for international development. Now is the moment to forge new partnerships, sharing our knowledge and expertise to tackle poverty is some of the most deprived parts of the world," Minister Duncan added.
