India-UAE cooperation to sow regional food security

  • Published
    20th Apr, 2023

Context

The India­UAE food security partnership stands to benefit from multiple points of convergence.

India’s capabilities

  • Global agri-export powerhouse- India has built its status as a global agri­export powerhouse using its vast tracts of arable land, a highly favourable climate, and a large and growing food production and processing sector.
  • Public Distribution System- India runs the Public Distribution System, the world’s largest food subsidy programme, providing nearly 800 million citizens with subsidised grains
  • Global food security dialogue- As a part of its G­20 presidency, India is promoting the consumption and farming of millets — nutritious, drought-resistant, sustainable, crops — that demonstrate the resilience focus that India offers to the global food security dialogue.

What the UAE brings to the table?

  • Investments in food parks- During the I2U2 (India, Israel, the United Arab Emirates and the United States) summit, the UAE committed $2 billion in investment towards constructing food parks in India.
  • Logistics and Infrastructure Pipelines- Given the food corridor’s incredible commercial potential, several UAE­based companies have expressed interest in constructing a supporting logistics and infrastructure pipeline to accelerate trade and reinforce the food corridor.
  • Agriota- The Dubai Multi Commodities Centre, the UAE’s largest free trade zone, launched Agriota, an agri­trading and commodity platform to link Indian farmers to food companies in the UAE.
