“The UAE-India Economic Forum continues to highlight the benefits of enhanced bilateral collaboration between the two countries. At Foundation Holdings, we are focused on both the UAE and India markets and seek to expand investments in businesses in each of these markets. The India-UAE bilateral relationship has evolved into a significant partnership in the economic and commercial sphere. Already the India-UAE trade is around US$52 billion, making India the largest trading partner of the UAE, while the UAE is India's third largest trading partner.
