PM Narendra Modi’s UAE Visit: At a Glance

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a massive number of around 60,000 Indians at a huge stadium in Dubai on the second day of his tour to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

PM Modi is in a two-day visit to UAE. He is the first Indian Prime Minister to visit the Emirates after Indira Gandhi’s tour way back in 1981.

Prime Minister Modi has greeted the Malayali community at the start of Chingam, the first month of the Malayalam New Year, which sees the festival of Onam falling in this month.

“Greetings to the Malayali community at the start of Chingam, the first month of the Malayalam New Year. May this year bring happiness and prosperity. Glad to mark this special day of Malayali community in UAE, where the community has a key presence and is admired for its industrious nature,” the Prime Minister said.

The Prime Minister earlier visited Masdar City, a planned city project in Abu Dhabi, which relies on solar energy and other renewable energy sources.

At a round-table meeting with business leaders at Masdar city, the Prime Minister made a strong pitch for investment in India, saying that an immediate potential of one trillion dollars worth of investment existed in the country.

The Prime Minister described India as a land of opportunity with 125 crore Indians who should be looked upon not just as a market, but also a great power. He said major agencies including IMF and World Bank were in agreement that India is now the fastest growing major economy in the world, with immense possibilities of development.

The Prime Minister said that many people were describing the 21st century as Asia’s century. He said that if India and UAE work together, they can make this vision of the Asian century a reality. He said UAE would be at the economic focus of the Asian century.

Earlier, the Prime Minister travelled briefly on the PRT (Personnel Rapid Transit) car – a driver-less vehicle which runs from point to point on magnetic strips and visited the Micro-Nano Fabrication Facility and the Microscopy Lab.

“Vigyan Jeevan Hai” the Prime Minister wrote, as he signed on a Digital Visitor’s Book at Masdar City.
