He stressed the need for coordination among all relevant authorities to preserve the UAE's stature as a favorite destination for foreign direct investments through procedures which include mobilizing political support, launching new initiatives to encourage trade, providing updates on the business environment, developing strategic partnerships between government officials and the business community to eventually eliminate barriers to trade and investment.
