The second edition of the annual UAE-India economic forum to explore investment opportunities in sectors like infrastructure, ports, railways and tourism in India will be held here this month. The two-day UAE-India Economic Forum (UIEF) is set to be inaugurated by Union Minister Nitin Gadkari on October 19-20 while Minister of State for External Affairs M J Akbar will deliver a keynote speech on the second day of the gathering.
The focus of this year’s forum will be investment opportunities in India’s infrastructural projects with the event’s sessions shedding light on sectors that offer attractive investment opportunities, including infrastructure, ports and railways, tourism and hospitality, healthcare, agriculture and food security.
The line-up of speakers include top leaders from the industry from both the countries, with UIEF emerging as a definitive networking and knowledge-sharing platform for major investors and government leaders.
The first edition of the forum last year was inaugurated by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. The 2016 edition is supported by the UAE’s Ministry of Economy, UAE International Investors Council, Federation of UAE Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Invest India and Abu Dhabi Global Market. The event is hosted by the Consulate General of India, Dubai along with Bloomberg Businessweek Middle East, and produced by UMS Conferences.
