The visit aims to lay down sustainable mechanisms that empower the business community in both countries to maximise their benefit from the CEPA signed by the two countries in February 2022 and came into effect early this month.
The visit will also brief the UAE delegation about the facilities and services that the historic CEPA will provide to companies and businesses in both countries and the opportunities for building new sustainable partnerships that will leverage the UAE-India relations to unprecedented levels across various walks of economic work.
