The agreement was signed by Obaid Humaid Al Tayer, Minister of State for Financial Affairs, who is heading the UAE delegation on a visit to the Scandinavian countries, and Per Bolund, Swedish Minister for Financial Markets and Consumer Affairs.
Present during the signing were the UAE Ambassador to Sweden, Eashid Sultan Al Kaitoub Al Nuaimi, and a number of Emirati and Swedish officials.
Al Tayer stressed that this visit reflects the UAE government's commitment to strengthen and expand its trade relations with various countries across the world, especially Scandinavian countries.
