The UAE will spare no effort to offer all possible assistance to make the Palestine Investment Conference achieve its aspired goals and live up to expectations of the Palestinian people, UAE Deputy Prime Minister affirmed Wednesday.

'The attendance of the UAE in this conference underlines the unequivocal support of the leadership, government and people of the UAE for the Palestinian Cause at all Arab, regional and international gatherings,' HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan said an address before the conference which opened in Bethlehem yesterday.

'The UAE leadership and people have been following the situation in the land of Palestine and the humanitarian suffering of the people of Palestine has occupied a considerable space in the thinking and policies of the UAE leadership which has spared no effort in mobilising its resources to stand behind the Palestinian people and rallying energies to enable them overcome the difficult situation they face,' Sheikh Hamdan said in his speech which read on his behalf by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, head of the UAE delegation to the international investment meeting.

He recalled that for this reason initiatives launched by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan had lent the humanitarian suffering of the Palestinian people due care with the intention of preserving their dignity and easing their aggravating suffering.

'The UAE has been supporting Palestine and its people and will continue to do so under the stewardship of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan,' he maintained.

As President of the UAE Red Crescent Society, Sheikh Hamdan explained that the UAE has over the past decades channelled its assistance into sectors of housing, education and health. According to him, major development and construction projects carried out by the UAE spread all over the cities and towns of the Gaza Strip and West Bank to include for example the rebuilding of Jenin camp, the Sheikh Zayed District in the holy city of Al Quds, the UAE Residential Quarter in Rafah, the Sheikh Zayed City in Beit Lahiya, Rafah Hospital, Sheikha Salama bint Butti Eye hospital in Nablus, in addition to aid to local economy through purchasing materials and supplies from the local market.

'The conference is being convened in a time when the Palestinian economy and scene are in desperate need. We hope this gathering would produce more strategic partnerships through which ambitions of the Palestinian people are achieved, their suffering is eased and their living is improved and their dignity are preserved,' he continued.

The three-day conference will serve as a platform to showcase promising investment opportunities in a variety of economic sectors in Palestine. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
