The delegation explored the current economic drivers within Denver, as well as on the state level. It also touched on the food security research and education initiatives being led by the National Western Centre.
 
Another meeting, which focused on food and agriculture, was held with the State University of Colorado and the Colorado Department of Agriculture, where the Dubai delegation had an extensive dialogue on food security. The meeting discussed possible ways where Dubai can enhance universities' curriculum to include agriculture and sustainability, as well as key areas where educators may consider joint research.
