According to a recent report by the UAE’s Ministry of Economy, the value of trade exchanges between India and the UAE is projected to reach $100 billion by 2020.

During the three-day event, the delegation will also meet with key stakeholders from the cities’ private and public sectors.

Senior officials from Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) led by Chairman Majid Saif Al Ghurair, are scheduled to meet with the chief ministers of Gujarat and Maharashtra during the visit, and discuss new ways the UAE and India can enhance economic cooperation.

Hamad Buamim, President and CEO, Dubai Chamber explained that the trade mission supports the Chamber’s strategy to expand its international network and explore trade and investment opportunities in promising markets, which its members and business in Dubai stand to benefit from.
