H.H. Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nayan, member of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Office, who is heading the UAE delegation to Japan, has met with the Prime Minister of Japan Fumio Kishida, in Tokyo.

Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed conveyed the greetings of President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan to the Japanese Prime Minister.

Japan also announced that UAE citizens will be exempted from entry visa requirements for holders of ordinary passports, and the date of the exemption will be announced in the coming period.

During the meeting, His Highness witnessed the launch of a strategic partnership agreement between the UAE and Japan, which was announced in 2018 during the visit of the late Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to the UAE.

The strategic partnership agreement aims to strengthen bilateral ties to serve common interests by encouraging more diplomatic, economic, political and commercial partnerships and by encouraging investment in both countries.

The key areas of the partnership include diplomacy, enhancing international development and humanitarian aid efforts, and cooperating across business, trade, energy and industry by enhancing the business environment to encourage trade and investment across technology, infrastructure, artificial intelligence, healthcare, and SMEs, as well as other high-priority sectors including agriculture, the environment, climate change solutions, education, science and technology, and defence and security.
