MENA-India: Diversifying the economic corridor

MENA Outlook Quarterly
Q3 2021 MO

This quarter we have examined the deepening relationship between India and the MENA region because of the acceleration of its evolution over recent years, having started in age-old ties between traders and cultures. We focus on: 

  • Modern relations between India and the region which are fundamentally tied to energy security, commerce and a significant Indian diaspora.
  • Changing dynamics which are presenting a much wider opportunity set, including prospects for bilateral strategic and foreign direct investments.
  • Opportunities in green energy, the start-up ecosystem and food trade.
