DMCC partners with India’s Institute of Directors

DUBAI, April 18, 2018

DMCC, a global Free Zone for commodities trade and enterprise, has signed an agreement with the Institute of Directors, India, during the 28th Word Congress on “Leadership for Business Excellence & Innovation” held recently in Dubai, UAE.

The memorandum of understanding (MoU) represents a commitment from both parties to strengthen ties, increase knowledge transfer and boost connectivity with the Dubai-based Indian business community, and identify further areas of collaboration to increase trade.

Bilateral trade between the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and India has risen from $182 million in 1982 to approximately $53 billion in 2017, a growth trend expected to continue in the coming years.

“Directed by the vision of its leaders, Dubai is built for business. The emirate’s state-of-the-art infrastructure has grown significantly over time, and it has become a modern magnet for international commerce. DMCC is proud to have supported this development story, and contribute to the formation of Dubai’s diversified economy through the provision of multi-sector revenue streams,” said Ahmed Bin Sulayem, executive chairman, DMCC.

“It is clear that more trade, more investment and fewer barriers to business is good for Dubai, DMCC and all connected partners. The agreement signed today symbolises that this approach to business is a shared one. We are delighted to be working even closer with the Institute of Directors, and supporting the many Indian businesses wishing to setup in Dubai.”

Lt Gen J S Ahluwalia, PVSM (retd.), president, Institute of Directors, said: “This agreement cements our longstanding relationship with DMCC. It builds on the work we have done together, over many years, to forge even stronger ties between the Indian business community and its counterparts in Dubai and the UAE. This is a significant moment for all involved and we look forward to the next phase of partnership. Together, we will continue to advocate for trade and promote good governance, sustainability, innovation and excellence across all businesses, industries and sectors.”

Under the patronage of Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, the UAE’s Minister of Tolerance, this year’s event focuses on transformative leadership for fostering creativity, innovation and business excellence.

The Dubai Global Convention is an annual event of the Institute of Directors. The convention is a platform conceptualised to bring together opportunities for learning and sharing between the member and associated companies and organisations, covering transformational leadership for disruptive innovation and business excellence. – TradeArabia News Service
