Abu Dhabi and India are entering a new era of trade with the completion of Kizad – the industrial zone of tomorrow.
Given the long commercial history between the two countries, Kizad views South Asia’s economic powerhouse as its key target market. In December 2012, Kizad went on its fourth trade mission to India visiting both Delhi and Mumbai. The overall objective of this tour was to drive Foreign Direct Investment from India into Kizad, though highlighting the unmatched benefits of Kizad.
During the trip to India, Kizad, in association with the Economic Times of India, hosted two events for leading Indian investors, with the first taking event taking place in Delhi on December 18th, followed by the second event in Mumbai on December 20th. Both events featured a keynote address by Mr. Khaled Salmeen, CEO and Managing Director, Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad), in which he promoted the benefits associated with investing in the Abu Dhabi marketplace and highlighted Kizad’s easy access to global markets, its low-cost utilities, its 100 per cent ownership opportunities and its tax-free environment. As part of the team's effort in promoting Kizad, Mr. Salmeen sat with India's top media in both Delhi and Mumbai, and explained what Kizad is doing to help Indian investors looking to expand beyond their borders.
