The UAE Ministry of Foreign Trade (MoFT) has announced that its trade office in India is now officially operational. The step is part of MoFT's strategy to further promote trade relations with the Indian subcontinent, expand the UAE's foreign trade contribution to its gross domestic product, preserve the country's trade interests as well as to increase the flow of foreign direct investments into its domestic markets, according to Abdullah Ahmed Al Saleh, Director-General of MoFT. This follows the opening of similar offices in China, the United States, Switzerland and Germany. "To further promote UAE exports and national products in international markets, MoFT has assigned qualified employees to trade sections in a number of UAE embassies abroad," Al Saleh added.
