Bilateral relations

Bilateral relations have known, since May 2008, a considerable revitalization following the visit of the State of the King of Spain, having since found a line of constant continuity through frequent exchanges of high-level visits, particularly the official visit of the Princes of Asturias to Abu Dhabi in January 2010 or the first of a Spanish Government President in February / March 2011.

Spanish strategic interests have been increasing over the past few years, both politically and economically, with the growth in the number of Spanish companies in the country having been exponential.

Despite the excellent state of bilateral relations and the enormous affinity in bilateral and international affairs, the dispute regarding renewable energies arose after the revision of the regulatory framework by the Spanish authorities ( 2013) and that has affected important Emirati investments in Spain.[4]
