Al Habtoor and Israel’s Shlomi Fogel expressed delight over the historical peace accord signed at a ceremony at the White House.
Days after signing the historic Abraham Accords Peace Agreement between the UAE and Israel, the Al Habtoor Group and Israel’s Ampa Group revealed plans to collaborate and open a representative office in Israel.
Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor, the founding chairman of the Al Habtoor Group (AHG), welcomed Israel’s Shlomi Fogel who is the co-owner, chairman and CEO of Ampa Group, at the AHG headquarters on Al Wasl Road, Dubai.
“I have been looking forward to this day for a very long time. I have always believed that Emiratis and Israelis have a lot in common. Both are business-oriented and have relied on human talent and ambition more than their countries’ natural resources to build robust, innovative economies,” Al Habtoor said.
Speaking about the deal with Ampa Group, Al Habtoor added, “The opportunities that this deal will present are great for both sides. I am confident this will open up new doors and lead to stronger economies, and closer cultural ties between the peoples.”
While Fogel said, “Through successful business collaboration and trade, peace will be cemented. Together with our Emirati counterparts, we will show the way to live in peace to the rest of the world.”
Both Al Habtoor and Fogel expressed delight over the historical peace accord signed at a ceremony at the White House. “Since the announcement of the normalization of relationships between the UAE and Israel, we have received a large number of inquiries for collaboration in several fields, ranging from AI and technology, to agriculture, hospitality and trading,” added Al Habtoor.
The AHG chairman had previously disclosed that the Group had launched talks with Israir Airlines Ltd. to open direct commercial flights, “and we are preparing to reveal a few collaborations in the coming days,” he said.
