UAE International Investors Council announces its partnership with the second Edition of UAE - India Economic Forum

 

The UAE International Investors Council has announced its participation in the 2nd Edition UAE - India Economic Forum (UIEF) as a Strategic Partner. Senior members of the council will participate in panel discussions with a special round table focused on investment opportunities in India. Organized by UMS Conferences, UIEF is the most definitive platform for major investors and government leaders from UAE and India to discuss rapidly diversifying and strengthening bilateral partnership between the two nations.

UAE International Investors Council was formed with the vision of acting as a link between investors abroad and the government in order to promote the competitiveness of Emirates investments abroad. It aims to join investment efforts of UAE companies investing abroad under one umbrella to form an investment power to strengthen foreign investment relations and support a sustainable economic development. Not only that, but it is to coordinate the positions of Council members in order to eliminate the obstacles facing UAE international companies. By having the biggest investment companies in the United Arab Emirates, the UAEIIC provides a platform supporting, protecting, promoting and expanding the interests and objectives of UAE international investors. Hence, it collects and shares information on the national investments abroad; assesses the effects of economic measures imposed by the host countries on UAE economic interests.

"India is one of the important countries to UAEIIC, which we have identified in a recent research study we have carried out at the council" Said Jamal Al Jarwan, Secretary General of UAEIIC.

The UIEF is the platform where the UAEIIC members should meet with the concerned Indian government officials to discuss the opportunities and obstacles their investments have been facing in India. I strongly believe that this event will be the key to sustain the UAE investments in India.

It is valued to mention that UAEIIC membership consists of a unity of Government and private bodies, among which are three Federal Ministries (Economy, Foreign Affairs and international Cooperation and Ministry of Finance). It also has the General Civil Aviation Authority. And 12 of the biggest companies in the UAE (Mubadala, Emaar, Etihad Airways, Etisalat Group, DP World, Dubai Investment, Thani Investment, Al Futtaim Group, Al Fahim Group, Sharaf Group, Borouj and IPIC).

Scheduled for October 19 - 20, 2016, in Dubai, UAE, the event is supported by UAE’s Ministry of Economy and the Council General of India, Dubai. Leading media houses of the region like Bloomberg Businessweek, Middle East, Gulf News, Motivate Publishing, and The Entrepreneur are on board as media partners.

UIEF was launched in 2015 by Hon. Shri Arun Jaitley, Finance Minister of India and has brought major investors and government leaders from both the countries under one platform.

Speaking about UAEIIC partnership Ravi Raman member of the organizing committee of UIEF commented “Participation of UAEIIC increases the stature and significance of the event as it will bring to light key insights of the biggest and smartest investors from UAE.”
