The Bharat Mart, akin to China’s Dragon Mart, stands as India’s warehouse facility. It was strategically located in the United Arab Emirates, and aimed at facilitating Indian exports. It will provide a unified platform for showcasing products. Set to commence operations in 2025, the facility spans over 1 lakh square metres in the Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA). It’s a subsidiary of DP World, housing a blend of warehouse, retail, and hospitality units.

This Indian Mart Is Bolstering Global Reach

With its inception, Bharat Mart is poised to catapult Indian companies onto the global stage. It aims to foster expansion into key markets like Africa, Europe, and the United States. By streamlining logistics, the facility is expected to slash shipping time and costs. Hence, it will enhance competitiveness in international trade.

During his UAE sojourn, PM Modi inaugurated the first Hindu temple in the region, marking a significant milestone in cultural diplomacy. Following this, engagements in Qatar were completed, including a meeting with Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.

Strengthening Bilateral Ties

Moreover, Modi engaged in bilateral talks with Mohammed bin Rashid, focusing on bolstering cooperation across various sectors such as trade, investment, technology, space, education, and people-to-people exchanges. Both leaders lauded the burgeoning economic and commercial relations between India and the UAE, underscoring the pivotal role played by the Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement inked in 2022.

Expressing Gratitude

Expressing gratitude, Modi commended Mohammed bin Rashid for his magnanimity towards the Indian community in Dubai, acknowledging their significant contributions to the emirate’s ascent as a global hub for trade, services, and tourism. This camaraderie underscores the enduring bonds between the two nations, poised for further growth and collaboration in the years ahead.

In conclusion, the inauguration of Bharat Mart marks a significant milestone in India-UAE relations, symbolizing the deepening economic ties and the commitment to mutual prosperity. As the facility gears up to revolutionize Indian trade abroad, it sets the stage for enhanced collaboration, fostering a future of shared success and prosperity between the two nations.
