The Forum: Partners for Global Impact 

The India-UAE partnership is going from strength to strength. Close cooperation during the pandemic has been followed by the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement in February, ushering in a new era of strategic alignment on trade and investment.

It is an example of successful cooperation against a backdrop of global, economic, and political fragmentation.

The IGF Forum and Studio will explore how businesses and entrepreneurs can leverage the huge opportunities opening up at the bilateral level, and also how the two countries can work together in tackling some of the most critical challenges regionally and globally.
