The Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) received an Indian commercial delegation on March 9, 2004, representing the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI).
The delegation was headed by Chief Minister of Haryana State, India, Om Prakash Chautala, and Chairman of FICCI, A C Muthiah. “Dubai and India have maintained progressive trade relations during the past years," said Board Member of DCCI, Anwar Gergash. "The total physical non oil trade between Dubai and India reached $2.5 billion against $1.5 billion in 1998 registering a growth of 66.6 percent in just five years, and we look forward to higher levels,” he added.
Gergash called on businesses on both sides to increase promotional and marketing efforts by organizing trade delegations, business mission visits and by participating in international fairs and exhibitions such as the UAE Trade Exhibition in India which is being organized for the second time next October. — (menareport.com)
