    Helping Advance the UAE-India Business Relationship

The UAE and India have re-energised their relationship. Leaders of the two nations, in frequent bilateral visits, have charted out a road map for more trade and investments. The UAE and India are also gaining a strong footing in the global economy as their value of exports and imports touched nearly $50 billion in 2017-18, according to Indian government data.

India is today the UAE’s primary trading partner, accounting for 9.8% of its total non-oil trade. It is also the largest importer of products from the UAE, buying about 14.9% of the country’s total exports and about 8.7% of its re-exports. The two nations have now set an ambitious target -- taking the value of trade to $100 billion by 2020.

Amid this scenario, UAE-India Economic Forum has become a platform to further foster this economic relationship. The vision of $100 billion in bilateral trade can only be achieved with sustained efforts to constantly engage key stakeholders, government authorities and investors in a dialogue that strengthens their faith in the governments and businesses — something the annual event has been successfully doing since 2015.
