Teo said,"His Highness Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the late founding President of the UAE, was said to have described the environment as an integral part of the UAE’s history and heritage." "In Singapore, our commitment towards a green environment started in the 1960s thanks to the vision of our founding Prime Minister Mr Lee Kuan Yew, way before words like 'sustainability' and 'climate change' entered our lexicon," he added. In his speech, Teo also said both Singapore and the UAE share common outlooks and challenges as small states and hubs in their respective regions, adding that the Singapore-UAE Comprehensive Partnership provides a useful framework to strengthen bilateral cooperation. In addition, Teo said both countries share strong people-to-people ties, highlighting that the UAE hosts the largest number of Singaporeans in the region.
