The UAE set to invest up to $14bn in post-Brexit UK
The UAE and the UK are taking steps toward stronger economic ties, with the UAE pleding to invest up to $14bn in post-Brexit UK.

The United Arab Emirates will invest 10 billion pounds ($14 billion) in post-Brexit Britain, targeting infrastructure, clean energy and technology over the coming years as the Gulf state seeks to strengthen trade ties beyond the Middle East.

The pledge came during the visit of de facto ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan to London and was unveiled by Abu Dhabi wealth fund Mubadala Investment Co., which has $243 billion under management, and the U.K. Office for Investment.


The U.K. is looking to beef up its trading relationships further afield as part of its pivot away from Europe. Earlier, the government in London said the UAE will invest $690 million in U.K.-based CityFibre to roll out high-speed broadband.

The plans expand a Sovereign Investment Partnership between the two countries agreed on earlier this year. So far, more than 1.1 billion pounds deployed since the partnership started, the sides said.

The UAE said this month it was seeking comprehensive economic agreements with countries showing high potential for growth, including the U.K., as well as countries mainly in Asia and Africa, as it faces growing regional competition from Saudi Arabia to retain its position as the Middle East’s main business and financial center.

(Updates with overall investment.)

And their money goes ta ta...

It's called buying protection......
Major misconception spewed by some Pakistanis they are not in need of protection. they have like around 10 state alliances in a closer quarter zone with direct land connection with each other great economy and alots of manpower 400m'ish they are not in need of anything by any means of necessary right now on paper they have second strongest military alliance after NATO with Peninsula shield + 4. If you remove the Nuclear out of the occasion they are 5 times stronger than Pakistan their alliance have formed into major power in the region center. If there was war between them and Pakistan right now they would win 10 out of 10 times Pakistan will be overwhelmed eventually. facing Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, Sudan, Jordan + 5 others etc etc at the same time would prove to be to much

On paper even the Afghan National Army was "stronger", yet they folded faster than a 2-7 offsuit poker hand...

Instead of investing in Muslim countries, UAE invests in UK. What a sad reality that the Muslim Ummah isn't united with one another.
They do invest quite large into our sovereign wealth fund

But that is like waiting for some sort of hail mary to happen which is highly unlikely what makes you not think the Pak armed forces folds like ANA instead. They are to heavily armed and patrioting for such scenario unlike ANA who had no attachment to their country this is to the bitter death. The likelihood of a hail mary happening for Pakistan is very minimal from a conventional point of view Egypt Alone will rough up Pakistan forget adding the others to the occasion there is a probability versus wishful thinking the probability always wins
