UAE was among the top four countries for foreign direct investment in India in 2022-23. During this period, bilateral trade between India and the UAE reached a staggering $85 billion, solidifying the two countries’ status as important trading partners. This economic cooperation was further facilitated by agreements such as the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) signed in February 2022 and the Local Currency Settlement (LCS) system established in July 2023.

The UAE has an Indian community of approximately 3.5 million people, forming the largest expatriate group in the country. Their contribution to the UAE’s socio-economic development has played an important role in fostering strong people-to-people ties.
