Be it in the field of arts or commerce, industry or academia, there is opportunity to discover, opportunity to partner, opportunity to progress. Come to India and explore these opportunities. India also offers you mamum growth. Growth in scale, growth in ambition, growth in results. Come to India and be a part of our growth story,” PM Narendra Modi saidin a video message at the inauguration event for the Indian show.

Commerce and industry minister Piyush Goyal said India and the UAE share a strategic and multi-faceted relationship resulting in the launch of negotiations for a proposed free trade agreement.
