Sharjah: The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) has hosted the “Sharjah-India Business Forum”, encouraging Indian companies and economic entities to leverage the prime investment opportunities and the dynamic business environment in the emirate.

During the Forum, held at the SCCI’s headquarters, the Chamber urged Indian businesses to consider joining the roster of global and regional firms that have chosen the emirate of Sharjah as their base for commercial and industrial activities.

Sharjah provides outstanding incentives, benefits, and facilitations to investors, coupled with advanced infrastructure and a promising market driven by economic diversification and investment in vital economic sectors.

The Sharjah-India Business Forum followed a visit by a business delegation of India’s PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PHDCCI) to the emirate of Sharjah. The delegation comprised representatives of companies specialising in strategic sectors, including fintech, agriculture, healthcare, information technology, infrastructure development, and chemical manufacturing.

Also present was Jamal Saeed Bouzanjal, Director of Corporate Communication Department at SCCI, along with a host of the Chamber’s officials and directors, as well as representatives from the Sharjah Airport International Free Zone Authority (SAIF Zone) and various economic entities from both Sharjah and India.

The Forum showcased the investment opportunities available in both Sharjah and India, highlighting the exclusive incentives and advantages offered by both regions to investors across various key sectors.

It also delved into prospects for promoting trade exchange and business interactions between investors and business leaders from both countries to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and coordination across different areas of cooperation. This helps establish joint investment projects that would benefit the business communities in both nations.

Fatima Khalifa Al Muqarrab emphasised that both the UAE and India provide a leading example of robust economic relations, continuously evolving based on shared visions and strategies aimed at expanding into new economic sectors. These sectors are crucial for fostering sustainable growth and enhancing economic competitiveness.

She noted that Sharjah-India Business Forum is a continuation of the collaboration between both sides, marked recently by the highly successful trade mission of the Sharjah Chamber to India. The mission resulted in over 365 bilateral business meetings between representatives of the Sharjah delegation and more than 220 Indian companies across various economic, industrial, and investment sectors.

Al Muqarrab reiterated the SCCI’s ongoing commitment to bolster the momentum of comprehensive economic partnerships between the UAE and India across all sectors.
