About the Book

Globalisation has brought the world much closer, resulting in widespread migration between countries, and the Indian population is of no exception. The long-term commercial relations between India and the United Arab Emirates have motivated many Indians to move to the UAE.

The focus of the book centers on Indian diaspora of the UAE and their entrepreneurial activities. It highlights the crucial role they played in setting up joint ventures, promoting FDI, facilitating exports, and mobilising human resources from India. As 'incipient diaspora', Indians in the UAE's contributions towards both their home and host countries are immense. This book discusses how they are an asset to both countries and how their potential can be utilised towards the reduction of poverty, social inequalities, and regional disparities. The diasporas-reader, research-scholars and policy makers may find the book useful.
