“The world is at a juncture in many ways, whether it’s tackling climate change or managing global economic turmoil. It’s more important than ever that nations, companies and influencers look for common ground and work towards positive outcomes for global impact.” IGF Founder and Chairman Manoj Ladwa said.

Our edition of the India Global Forum in the United Arab Emirates, the first major global event since India’s rise to the G20 presidency, will enable just that.”

The gathering is set to conclude on Friday with the first-ever UAE India Awards, which IGF organizers say are set to celebrate the leading figures and companies driving collaboration between the two nations “goes from strength to strength.”
