    Zanzibaris should expect improved health services and increased job opportunities following the signing of a bilateral agreement between Zanzibar and Ras Al Khaimah emirate in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) aiming at strengthening ties between the two states.

    According to a statement by the Zanzibar State House, President Ali Mohamed Shein and the Ras Al Khaimah Emir, Sheikh Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, signed an agreement at the latter's palace to enhance cooperation through reciprocal visits, and supporting Zanzibar development.

    "Zanzibar has a lot to learn from Ras Al Khaimah, and promote tourism," President Shein was quoted as saying as his host promised to support Zanzibar in various development areas mainly investment projects, free port, infrastructure, economy, education and health.

    Dr Shein said empowering Zanzibaris economically, improving health services, and reducing unemployment were among his government's priorities that Ras Al Khaimah can support.

    Similar to a recent pledge from Norway, Ras Al Khaimah referral hospital promised to work with Zanzibar's referral hospital- Mnazi Mmoja in developing surgery department, and the treatment of kidney, heart, and cancer complications.

    Meanwhile Dr Shein also visited Sharjah emirate also in UAE where he managed to ask for support in research and find water sources that will enable the archipelago produce sufficient water for its more than one-million inhabitants.

    Sharjah leader Sheikh Sultani Mohamed Al Qasim promised that his country was ready to help Zanzibar improve its water supply services.

    Shein also met with members of Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and called on them to invest heavily in Zanzibar and
    Tanzania mainland because "of favourable environment for business including peace and stability."

    Ali Mohamed Shein left last Friday for a week-long official visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) where he is to attract investors, publicize Zanzibar, and ask for development support from the Arab state.

    Good for Zanzibaris, all the agreements will be for the people of Zanzibar and Pemba not Tanganyika
