Harare – The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will open an embassy in Zimbabwe, the UAE president has said.

Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan issued several federal decrees to establish the UAE Embassy in Zimbabwe and appointed and promoted members of the diplomatic corps.

The decrees were published in the latest edition of the Federal Official Gazette and stipulate the establishment of the UAE Embassy in capital, Harare.

The UAE is a destination of choice for many young people, especially from Africa.

Seduced by high salaries that are not taxed, the country’s opulent lifestyle and its constantly growing economy that offers many job opportunities, the UAE is favoured by countless expatriates as the country to go to make money then return home.
