HCCP VISION FOR MIDDLE EAST
The HCCP has developed the Terms of Reference for a Joint Taskforce to identify and leverage joint business opportunities for the UAE and economic growth for Africa.
Background: Our proposal is based on practical experience and multiple in-country visits and facilitation of the UAE representative visits to Africa.
In 2016, HCCP Director provided robust support to the UAE Chairmanship of the Kimberly process to address the fundamental shortcomings of the said mechanism by taking affirmative action in the form of the establishment of a Permanent KP Secretariat of the United Nations, funded, for the most part by the
wealthier members of the diamond industry. Much support for the detail of this proposal were garnered from within the UN – from Simon-Pascal Alain Handy, then Special Assistant-Political at the United Nations.
