“We have received support to pitch camp and do business here so we would like to take Emiratis to India and make them understand what it is to do business in India,” said BLF President Dr Azad Moopen.
Small and medium enterprise (SME) projects ranging from $10 to $50 million are likely to be showcased at the two-day summit, with healthcare, tourism, infrastructure and education as some of the key focus areas.
“We will focus on medium and small enterprises. We will provide full-time support and information about the projects and how to take them forward,” said Moopen.
More than 800 delegates, including ministers, government officials, private entrepreneurs, investors and industry leaders are expected to be in attendance at the partnership summit to be held at the Armani Hotel, Burj Khalifa.
The annual trade volume between the UAE and India currently stands at about $53.09 billion, and they’re targeting a 60 per cent increase in these figures over the next five years.
