A ten-member Indian delegation, led by Gujarat Industries Commissioner Kamal Diyani, will showcase investment opportunities to industrialists and businessmen in Dubai at a seminar on ‘Investment Opportunities in Gujarat’ today.

The delegation, which will visit Abu Dhabi and Sharjah this week, also met businessmen in Kuwait to discuss investment opportunities.

Diyani said the goal of the visit was to present the many investment opportunities available in Gujarat.

The delegation comprises senior executives from the State’s leading Private and Government Companies from oil and gas, chemicals and fertilisers, information and communications technology, and infrastructure sectors.

They will also extend an invitation to UAE-based business investors, corporations and policymakers, among others, for the ‘Vibrant Gujarat Summit’ to be held in Gandhinagar in January next year.

“The Indian delegation’s visit was meant to enhance the successful trade cooperation between two countries and bringing Kuwaiti Private Sector into the fold as a contributor in promoting these relations,” Kuwait Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) Board Member Hussein Al-Kharafi said in a statement.

Today’s session has been jointly organised by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and the Indian Business and Professional Council under the aegis of the Consulate General of India in Dubai.

Consul General of India in Dubai Sanjay Verma, Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chairman Abdul Rahman Saif Al Ghurair, Indian Business and Professional Council President Bharat Butaney will also address the gathering.

“By carefully planning special industrial zones and investment regions, Gujarat has created a conducive business and regulatory environment within many industries.

“With UAE’s strong foothold in these sectors, the delegation’s meetings will provide a foundation for building partnerships that will invigorate the economies of both regions,” a statement released by the Consulate General of India said.
