Cairo, Dec 4 (IANS/WAM) The United Arab Emirates does its best to help Arab expatriates reconnect with their home countries, a minister said Saturday.
In an address made before the first Arab expatriates conference which opened here Saturday, Labour Minister Saqr Ghobash Saeed Ghobash said like other GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) countries, the UAE has no large communities of citizens living abroad permanently.
“Yet, and emanating from its keenness to support Arab cause, the UAE spares no effort in helping to strengthen expatriates’ bonds with their countries and with the Arab world,” he said.
