Explained: PM Modi’s visit to strengthen political, bilateral and cultural ties with UAE
PM Modi’s seventh visit to the UAE will see the inauguration of Abu Dhabi’s first ever temple will also witness the signing of several economic deals which are considered to be of great significance to both countries.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to visit the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on February 13-14. During his two-day official visit, he will inaugurate the BAPS Mandir. The BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir is the first traditional Hindu temple in Abu Dhabi and is built on 27 acres of land donated by the UAE leadership, symbolising the long-standing cultural, social, and economic ties between India and the Gulf region. Additionally, the Prime Minister will address the Indian community in the UAE at an event in Zayed Sports city in Abu Dhabi.
Several economic deals are also expected to be signed during the Prime Minister’s visit. This comes after the President of the United Arab Emirates, Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, made a rare speech at the Vibrant Gujarat Summit.
