DMCC: India's business community looks to Dubai as hub to expand business and grow internationally

DUBAI, 5th October, 2017 (WAM) -- DMCC, the Government authority on trade, enterprise and commodities in Dubai, has said that India’s business community is increasingly looking to Dubai as a hub to expand their business and grow internationally, as it concluded its week-long roadshow visiting Mumbai and Kolkata, West Bengal.

Gautam Sashittal, DMCC Chief Executive Officer, said, "Headquartered in Dubai, and home to 13,700 companies and growing, one Indian company joins DMCC every working day. Over 2,000 Indian businesses have already come to DMCC to grow their business in Dubai and beyond."

Passionate about connecting people and markets, DMCC visited Mumbai on 3rd October with their ‘Made for Trade Live’ roadshow. With over 300 Indian business leaders in attendance, the roadshow’s agenda explored the opportunities of setting up a company in DMCC, and the flexible benefits of operating out of Dubai. A second roadshow that attracted over 150 people, marked DMCC’s inaugural roadshow in Kolkata, West Bengal, took place on 4th October.

"Valued at just US$180 million in the 1970’s, compared to the US$50 billion we see today, the UAE-India partnership is a great example of how strong leadership and collaboration delivers. Our inaugural DMCC Made for Trade Live road shows in Mumbai and Kolkata sets out to build on this success by connecting business leaders here with Dubai’s pro-business community to unlock new opportunities and strengthen the future of trade for all," Sashittal concluded.
