“We have built strong relationships with our suppliers in Western Australia over almost four decades, and this trade is an important part of the economic relationship between the UAE and Australia. Our cooperation has created economic opportunity in both countries, and we are always looking for how we can extend this value creation for mutual benefit. We are grateful for the support of Premier McGowan and the Government of Western Australia and look forward to continued cooperation with companies in his state in the future,” Dr. Al Zarouni said.
