DP World has launched a new initiative called India-UAE Bridge in an effort to bring Indian trade and investments to Jebel Ali Port. Media reports said that according to the company statement the port operator created the initiative by offering end-to-end solutions to companies and entrepreneurs in India.
The solution is a collaboration between DP World, Jafza and the Indian Business and Professional Council. The proposed solutions integrate DP World’s assets in both countries. Through the initiative, investors will receive the necessary support to access markets on a global scale.
Also, another significant objective of the initiative is to encourage talented Indians to explore the Middle East markets with their entrepreneurial ideas and established businesses.
CEO and Managing Director, DP World, UAE Region and CEO of Jafza Mohammad Al Muallem told Gulf News, “Under The India-UAE Bridge, synergies between DP World, UAE Region and India and the ports and logistics capabilities in both the countries, we will be able to offer integrated supply chain solutions to businesses through our unique end-to-end solutions.”
The initiative was announced during an event attended by the Ambassador of India to UAE Navdeep Suri, Mohammad Al Muallem, CEO and Managing Director, DP World, and President of the Executive Committee, IBPC Nimish Makvana.
This is not the first time for India to partner with Dubai on initiatives. India is Dubai’s second-largest trading partner. Natalia Sycheva, manager, entrepreneurship department of Dubai Chamber of Commerce said that India was the ‘first choice’ when Dubai decided to launch a programme to attract overseas startups.
These Indian startups are expected to transform Dubai’s construction, logistics, technology, and retail sectors.
