The virtual event, the UAE-Israel Peace & Prosperity Roundtable, will set the tone for the bilateral relations between the two countries. The half-day conference will bring together government and business leaders around topics ranging from healthcare technology, trade and investment to politics and the stability of the Middle East.
Then, in February, hundreds are expected to attend the live event to discuss the growing importance of the peace accord.
“The summit will help us explore business opportunities and  strengthen people-to-people interactions Kamat said.
