Noura bint Mohammed Al Kaabi, Minister of State, met with Sunjay Sudhir, Ambassador of the Republic of India to the UAE.

During the meeting, she congratulated India for successfully hosting and presiding over the G20 summit in New Delhi and commended its leading role in uniting international efforts and achieving common interests, in both economic and environmental domains.

The two sides discussed strategic relations between the countries and ways to enhance and develop them, reflecting the strong bonds of friendship between the two nations. Various initiatives in sectors such as culture, education, and others were also discussed.

Al Kaabi emphasised that relations and partnerships between the UAE and the Republic of India have strengthened significantly in recent times across various fields, including culture, renewable energy, healthcare, food security, science, technology and education, with progress attributed to the visions of the leadership of both countries and their unwavering support for collaboration that serves the interests of both countries and their key sectors.

Earlier, in an interview, Sudhir said India and UAE, as respective chairs of G20 and COP28, are bringing their synergies to use these platforms to set the agenda for a new world.

“This global agenda calls for development, justice, equity and harmony for all, and promotes the common values of Mahatma Gandhi [father of Indian nation] and Baba Zayed [UAE’s founding father] — our shared vision of One Earth, One Family and One Future [India’s G-20 Presidency theme],” he said.

G20 trade and investment ministers’ meeting (TIMM) in Jaipur late last month adopted the key resolutions developed during the year by the trade and investment working group. The outcomes of the TIMM will be presented to the G-20 Leaders’ Summit.

The ambassador noted that India-UAE cooperation in this regard is relevant as the UAE will be hosting the World Trade Organisation (WTO) Ministerial Meeting next year.

He added, “India-UAE partnership has been like a beacon of light even during the tough COVID times where we strived to succeed in continuing the value chain linkages between our two countries.”

India and the UAE are major trade partners, Sudhir pointed out. “With the steady increase in bilateral trade since the signing of the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) last year, I am confident that we will achieve our target of non-oil bilateral trade of US$ 100 billion in the next few years.”
