The Gulf Today - Business - - UAE -

DUBAI: The In­dian Busi­ness and Pro­fes­sional Coun­cil (IBPC) in Dubai re­cently hosted a meet­ing in co­op­er­a­tion with the Dubai Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try, which com­mem­o­rated the Year of Zayed, and high­lighted the Coun­cil’s efforts to strengthen Uae-in­dia eco­nomic ties in the near fu­ture.

The joint meet­ing, held at Dubai Cham­ber’s premises un­der the theme, “Well-founded and Fu­ture Ready,” fea­tured a pre­sen­ta­tion, fo­cused on the great con­tri­bu­tions made by the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sul­tan Al Nahyan to­wards en­hanc­ing re­la­tions be­tween the UAE and In­dia and relected his for­ward­look­ing vi­sion, val­ues and legacy. The event con­nected the IBPC mem­bers and pro­vided an ideal plat­form for In­dian busi­ness­men in Dubai to dis­cuss var­i­ous issues of mu­tual in­ter­est.

Dur­ing the meet­ing, Suresh Ku­mar, Pres­i­dent of the IBPC, high­lighted the IBPC’S achieve­ments, as well as the im­por­tant role the Coun­cil has played in strength­en­ing Uae-in­dia trade and in­vest­ment ties. He ex­plained how the Coun­cil has served as a cat­a­lyst for fu­elling Uae-in­dia trade and in­vest­ment since its es­tab­lish­ment in 2003, adding that it will plan to scale up its efforts in this area.

Ku­mar noted that the IBPC will aim to strengthen its sec­tor fo­cus in the near fu­ture and ex­pand its links with ma­jor busi­ness houses in the UAE, in ad­di­tion to their coun­ter­parts in In­dia, es­pe­cially those with strong syn­er­gies.

He added that the IBPC, with the co­op­er­a­tion and sup­port of Dubai Cham­ber, would align its ac­tiv­i­ties with the ob­jec­tives of Dubai Plan 2021, and pro­vide a blueprint for com­pa­nies to be­come “fu­ture-ready,” adding that these efforts would bring about sev­eral ben­e­fits to all stake­hold­ers.

Dur­ing his wel­come re­marks, Has­san Al Hashemi, Vice Pres­i­dent of In­ter­na­tional Re­la­tions at Dubai Cham­ber, de­scribed the IBPC as one of the most in­flu­en­tial busi­ness coun­cils formed un­der the umbrella of Dubai Cham­ber. He ex­pressed his op­ti­mism about the fu­ture of Uae-in­dia re­la­tions and said there is huge po­ten­tial to build on ex­ist­ing ties given the in­creased eco­nomic co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the two coun­tries in re­cent years.

Al Hashemi re­vealed the Cham­ber’s new rep­re­sen­ta­tive ofice in Mum­bai, set to be opened be­fore the end of this year, will aim to build new bridges be­tween the In­dian and UAE busi­ness com­mu­ni­ties and take bi­lat­eral re­la­tions to the next level.

Fol­low­ing the meet­ing, the IBPC’S new Gover­nance Board was an­nounced af­ter Dubai Cham­ber au­tho­rised the Coun­cil ac­cord­ingly.
