According to recent statistics, UAE-India trade relation has grown to $60 billion on a yearly basis. Thus India becomes the second largest trade partner for UAE. A total of $27 billion UAE exports to India. On the other hand, India exports $33 billion to UAE.
Lately, in a series of high-level bilateral visits between India and UAE, strong friendship has been forged amid the two nations. Granting entry visas to UAE is a major move that establishes the two countries in a strong platform.
