The signing of the peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) was one of the most significant agreements in the Middle East region in recent times. Officially known as the "Abraham Accords Peace Agreement: Treaty of Peace, Diplomatic Relations and Full Normalization Between the United Arab Emirates and the State of Israel," the collaboration between the United Arab Emirates and Israel was announced on August 13, 2020, and signed on September 15, 2020 at the White House.

With this agreement, UAE has scrapped an economic boycott against Israel, which was in place for many years. This is expected to enhance the trade and financial opportunities between the two countries. According to some estimates from Israel, trade with the UAE could eventually total $4 Bn a year, creating 15,000 jobs. Bahrain has joined the UAE and signed a similar agreement with Israel, indicating the significance of this development.

Key sectors the collaboration is expected to develop include:

  • Start-ups and Innovation
  • Smart Farming
  • Security and Surveillance
  • Tourism
  • Trade
  • Education
  • Healthcare
