Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry finalizes plans for trade mission to India
Leading the delegation will be Majid Saif Al Ghurair, the Chamber's chairman. He will be joined by Hamad Buamim, president and CEO of the Chamber; Essa Al Ghurair, chairman of Al Ghurair Resources; Abdullah Al Sharafi, president of Gerab National Enterprises; Ismail Akil Abbasi, chairman of Abbasi Group; Adel Al Ali, executive director of development, ports customs and Free Zone Corporation hotels; Kulwant Singh Thiara, president of the Indian Business and Professional Council; and Ahmad Belyoha, chairman of the Emirates Macaroni Factory.
Buamim said the mission is part of a strategy to expand internationally. The Chamber seeks to explore promising markets for trade and investment. Buamim believes India, specifically Mumbai and Ahmedabad, offers growing sectors that include telecommunications, hospitality, finance, construction and pharmaceuticals.
“This trade mission will help us promote the 4th Global Business Forum on Africa, which we are planning to host in Dubai later this year,” Buamim said. “The high-profile event will serve as an important platform where Indian companies can learn more about growth opportunities in Africa and explore ways they can access the continent by leveraging Dubai’s status as a strategic hub.”
