Mohammed Saif Al Suwaidi, the Director General of Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD), received Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali, the President of Guyana, and his delegation. The meeting was attended by senior officials from ADFD. The two sides discussed the strategic relations and future opportunities that serve mutual interests.
Al Suwaidi expressed his gratitude to President Irfaan Ali for the visit, saying it would go a long way in strengthening the ties through a more robust economic and investment cooperation.
“Abu Dhabi Fund for Development enjoys strong strategic relations with Guyana. We are already engaged in developmental work in the country.
The visit of Dr. Irfaan Ali reflects the eagerness on both sides to take the developmental partnership to new heights.”
He pledged ADFD’s full support for Guyana’s developmental aspirations and efforts to achieve its sustainable goals.
Praising the UAE leadership over the country’s extraordinary development, Dr. Irfaan Ali said that the strong bilateral relations, as well as cooperation with ADFD, would enable Guyana to achieve his nation’s vision of prosperity.
“We see the UAE not only as a strategic trade and investment partner, but also as a global model of sustainable development, state-of-the art technology, infrastructure and governance. A stronger strategic partnership with Abu Dhabi Fund would greatly facilitate our own developmental ambitions,” he said.
The President emphasised that the UAE has shown the world how to build a well-diversified economy with robust infrastructure. “That is exactly what we want to achieve in Guyana through our partnership with ADFD and key stakeholders in the UAE,” he said.
President Irfaan Ali explained that Guyana is already working closely with ADFD on infrastructure projects, including clean energy, and that a stronger collaboration would accelerate the country’s economic transformation and climate efforts.
