The exact worth of the MoUs was not shared by the authorities but sources said the UAE was expected to invest between USD 20-25 billion in cash-strapped Pakistan under the agreements.

Pakistan's economy has been reeling under pressure for the last few years, and the country is battling an acute balance of payments crisis and falling foreign exchange reserves.

Kakar termed the signing of the MoUs a historic event that “will take economic cooperation between both brotherly countries to new heights and open doors of economic prosperity and socio-economic development of Pakistan”.

Earlier, the prime minister held a bilateral meeting with Sheikh Mohamed, which was also attended by Chief of Army Staff General Syed Asim Munir. The two leaders reaffirmed their resolve to strengthen the bilateral strategic cooperation and dialogue.

Prime Minister Kakar thanked the UAE's leadership for their firm support for Pakistan in the economic and financial domain. He also reiterated Islamabad’s full support to the UAE’s Presidency of the COP2.
