India Becoming Economic Partner of MENA Region

India is now increasingly positioning itself as an economic partner

India is positioning itself as an economic partner by investments in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, said a senior official of Export-Import Bank of India (India Exim Bank) on Friday.

In his address at the India-Morocco Business Forum, the bank’s Deputy Managing Director Harsha Bangari said that India’s trade with the MENA region has traditionally been governed by the fact that the region has been a critical source of energy.

“India is now increasingly positioning itself as an economic partner through increased investments in the region,” she said.
