He emphasised that Indian companies are also investing in UAE in a big way across many sectors including energy.
“Our bilateral relations offer you the opportunity to partner with UAE companies in a big way and also to learn from their experiences,” said Sudhir, who joined the Indian Foreign Service in 1993.
India-UAE partnership is accelerating fast, he added.
“We see this reflected in investments made in India by leading UAE companies in last several years.
“In last five years alone, more than 10 billion dollar have been invested by UAE sovereign wealth fund across renewable energy, telecom, road infrastructure, affordable housing and startups,” Sudhir said.
Stating that this is a two-way investment, the ambassador said that Indian companies are also investing in UAE.
Sudhir said there is a very special interest in affordable housing as partnership with HDFC and Kotak group are being strengthened.
The UAE trusts India’s growth story, he said, and this provides a lot of opportunities for growth for Indian businesses.
Sudhir said the bilateral relations between India and UAE have made a rapid stride in the last eight years.
