HGD in the UAE

The Hereditary Grand Duke and Minister Jeannot Krecké are making the rounds in the Middle East in the days leading up to their appearance in Saudi Arabia.

Yesterday, 13 May, they were received by the UAE-located Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi's court. They were apparently not personally greeted by The Crown Prince himself, but Sheikh Hamed bin Zayed Al Nahya (Chief of the Crown Princely court). The Sheikh expressed hope that the visit would continue to enhance the ties between Luxembourg and his nation, while Guillaume indicated that Luxembourg views bilateral bonds as important and hopes for continued cooperation and progress with the UAE.

The Hereditary Grand Duke and Minister Krecké also met with the UAE's Minister of Foreign Trade, Sheikha Lubna Al-Qassimi. They discussed renewable energy, trade, healthcare and pharmaceuticals.

You may recall from recent international visits of Guillaume and Jeannot that Luxembourg is actively promoting their pharmaceutical industry.
