It sets the tax rates imposed by the source country on interest and revenue. The move reflects the depth of the economic relations between the UAE and Japan, and will enhance mutual investments.

The agreement is also expected to bolster the relations in the fields of economy and human resources between the two countries and strengthen and contribute towards measures to prevent fiscal evasion.
