The U.S.-U.A.E. Business Council hosted a dinner with healthcare executives and life sciences companies in Boston, Massachusetts in honor of H.E. Dr. Amin Al Amiri, Assistant Undersecretary of the U.A.E. Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP). 

H.E. Dr. Al Amiri praised the U.A.E.’s dramatic growth in the number of its domestic scientific offices, manufacturing facilities, and logistical centers of pharmaceutical companies since 2015. He credited this growth for facilitating the U.A.E.’s world-leading response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and for positioning the country as the regional hub for manufacturing and distribution of PPE, vaccines, and medicines. He expressed MOHAP’s desire to attract hospitals and healthcare professionals to the U.A.E. as a result of significant regulatory and legal reforms undertaken by the U.A.E. with new measures such as medical liability and the golden visa program. He underscored his Ministry’s focus on preventative healthcare and encouraging healthy lifestyles for U.A.E. citizens and residents. He emphasized MOHAP’s eagerness to work even further with world-class American companies, concluding that MOHAP’s “policy is partnership.”

H.E. Dr. Amin Al Amiri is visiting Boston to participate in the annual BIO Convention, and will be speaking on a panel hosted by Organon titled, “Spurring Life Sciences Innovation Across the Globe” alongside representatives from the governments of The Netherlands, the United Kingdom, France, and Australia. Please see here for more information about this panel. 

H.E. Dr. Amin Al Amiri is the Assistant Undersecretary for Health Regulation at MOHAP, and has long been an avid supporter of the U.S.-U.A.E. bilateral relationship. He has presided over the creation of key partnerships between MOHAP and major U.S. companies. H.E. Dr. Al Amiri is keen to see further public-private collaboration, especially with companies wishing to commit to new pharmaceutical research, development, and manufacturing to the U.A.E.
