The UAE is a leading country in the region and the world in the area of legislative development, she added.
"The FNC was honoured to visit China in November 2018, when it held many meetings with parliamentary and government leaders and signed an MoU with the President of the Permanent National Committee for Chinese Parliamentarians, which was the first MoU signed by China with a parliamentary institution from another country, with the aim of advancing its parliamentary relations," Dr.
Al Qubaisi said.
Al Qubaisi presented the FNC’s contributions to the UAE’s legislative development, noting that the FNC has many specialist committees concerned with discussing and revising national legislation.
Zhou thanked the FNC for organising the visit, while noting the official visit of Xi Jinping, President of China, to the UAE last year, and the visit of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to China, which advanced their partnership for a new era of cooperation.
