During the workshop attended by a number of entrepreneurs, the two parties agreed to reinforce their efforts to drive socio-economic growth in the country, exchange knowledge, and provide additional opportunities for young citizens in various sectors.

Al Rumaithi said: “Khalifa Fund will continue to promote entrepreneurship among UAE citizens, encourage innovation, and strengthen the local SME sector to contribute in the UAE’s socio-economic development.

In addition, it will engage the financiers from Khalifa Fund to develop their skills, raise their awareness, and promote innovation within their ranks in line with the UAE’s strategic objectives.”
