The French Experience

In another event, TRENDS Research and Advisory released a book entitled "The French Experience", authored by Ali Abdullah AlAhmad, Assistant Undersecretary for Policies and Defence Communication at the UAE’s Ministry of Defence. The event was organised at TRENDS Pavilion in the presence of senior officials, in addition to a large audience of those interested in cultural and diplomatic affairs. The panel discussion was moderated by TRENDS researcher Reem AlKindi, who welcomed the audience and praised Ambassador AlAhmad's research effort that enriched the Arab library with this valuable book.

Ambassador AlAhmad delivered a presentation on his book. He spoke about his experiences during his tour of duty as Ambassador of the United Arab Emirates to France. He also shared some insights and observations with the audience related to his period in France.

He indicated that the bilateral relations between the UAE and France have witnessed a remarkable development during the past years, thanks to cooperation in various fields. He shared some of his memories during his time in France, such as his visit to the Elysee Palace, his meeting with the French President, and his engagements at international conferences.

Ambassador AlAhmad discussed the impact of the COVID pandemic on France and the world, and praised the effective measures taken by the French government to combat the pandemic.

Ambassador AlAhmad said that cultural relations between the UAE and France have grown significantly in recent years. He referred to the presence of the prestigious Sorbonne University and the world-famous Louvre Museum in Abu Dhabi as a testament to the depth of this cultural relationship.

He said that the friendship between the UAE and France has been cemented by the close relationship between the UAE's founding leader, the Late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and former French President Jacques Chirac. The two leaders exchanged mutual respect and understanding, which laid the solid foundation for strong cultural and economic relations between the two countries.

Ambassador AlAhmad explained that the UAE's significant contributions to UNESCO reflect its commitment to the promotion of education, culture, and peace. The UAE is the second largest contributor to UNESCO, sponsoring many programs, most notably education and teacher development programs. Through these initiatives, the UAE plays a critical role in transforming entire communities and promoting development and peace.

The presentation was followed by an open discussion where the audience raised their questions to Ambassador AlAhmad about the content of the book and his experience in France.
