Sharjah and Indian officials have reviewed the prospects of business collaboration, on a tour of the sub-continent by senior officials from the emirate.

Led by the Sharjah FDI Office (Invest in Sharjah – IIS), the delegation met with a number of India’s leading business owners, entrepreneurs and government officials in a packed agenda of B2B and G2G networking meetings.

The tour also included site visits to explore growth potential in technology and other future-focused industries in Sharjah.

During the visit the IIS-led delegation visited Hyderabad and Bengaluru to explore further bilateral relations in light of the economic ties that the UAE and India have enjoyed for over 55 years.

It sought to inform and educate Indian investors and businesses about the new and emerging potential in Sharjah in the future-focused sectors of fintech, clean energy and climate action, food security, sustainability, digital payments, cyber security, cryptocurrencies, and advanced technologies, amongst others.

The two Indian cities are powerhouses of technological innovation in the region and this IIS-led visit gave industry players first-hand insights on ways they can leverage Sharjah as a gateway to the Middle East.
