The Emirates is China’s most important trade partner in the Arab world and responsible for 28 per cent of non-oil trade between China and the region.

The UAE, the Arab world’s second-largest economy, is home to thousands of Chinese companies, including many in free zones, and about 200,000 Chinese citizens.

Most recently, the UAE and Chinese drug maker Sinopharm worked together to produce a vaccine for the coronavirus.

Tens of thousands of UAE residents were volunteers in a Phase 3 trial of the Sinopharm vaccine, which has been rolled out in limited numbers and, it is hoped, will soon be ready for broader use.
