Dubai: There will be a huge Indian participation in the annual International Property Show that will be held in Dubai this coming April. The event organisers, Strategic Marketing & Exhibitions predicted it.
A total of 15 Indian companies, double the figure compared to last year, will be showcasing their projects and targeting the large Indian expatriate community of five million at the International Property Show to be held from April 11 to 13, Khaleej Times reported on Tuesday.
According to the organisers, Indians top foreign investments in Dubai’s property market.
Between 2006 and 2015, India’s investments ballooned to over 120 billion Dirhams ($32.6 billion) through more than 57,000 transactions surpassing the largest investor groups – British and Pakistani investors – both in value and number of transactions.
“The close relations between the UAEand Indian governments have created an ideal investment climate that boosts flow of funds in both directions, especially in real estate,” Dawood Al Shezawi, the president of Strategic Marketing & Exhibitions, said.
He said the investors from India have a strong inclination to buy property in the UAE.
Meanwhile, Anurag Bhushan, Consul General of India in Dubai, said, “A total of about 26,000 Indian companies are operating in the UAE, and more than 20 of India’s leading banks and financial institutions have established offices in the DubaiInternational Financial Center.”(IANS)
Millennials are seekers of wholesome experiences. For them, travel is not just a means of escaping a busy lifestyle, but an end in itself. It’s an essential part of life, not a break away from it.
In sync with the new taste and preferences of young adventure-seekers, the following places are rising up to the occasion by enhancing their travel experiences:
An exquisite confluence of history and culture, Aurangabad is home to the renowned Ajanta and Ellora Caves, a lot of old forts, art galleries, and museums. Besides this, the place is a bubbling, simmering pot of a range of dishes that no food-lover can afford to miss.
What could be better than mountains and peace? Mukteshwar is the stuff that a nature lover’s dreams are made of. It is the perfect place to chill alongside Nature within the folds of mighty mountains while enjoying the soul-soothing embrace of sunlight and the skin-tingling kiss of wintry waft. Mukteshwar is less than an eight-hour drive from Delhi, making it one of the closest hill stations to the Capital.
Wayanad is another treat for nature-lovers who also seek unique cultural experiences. Situated at a distance of 76 kilometers from the beaches of Kozhikode, the region is popular among backpackers on account of its near-perfect weather and scenic setting punctuated with dams, lakes, and hike trails. The town paints a quaint and soothing picture with the lush green of mountainous plateaus, picturesque jungles, and idyllic valleys dominating. Squatting atop the Western Ghats and enclosing part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, Wayanad is not considered the most beautiful district in Kerala in vain.
Pokhara is often called the tourism capital of Nepal – and it is not in vain that it has received this moniker. It serves as a gateway to the renowned Annapurna Circuit, is among the most exciting paragliding destinations the world over, and offers the entrancing sight of the beautiful lake framed by sky-piercing mountains. What crystallizes its reputation as the ultimate ‘Adventure Land of Nepal’ is that it cuts a less busy version of Kathmandu while holding on its own as a must-visit backpacker’s paradise.
It is only when one has explored the intricate network of waterways which can only have been knitted by Mother Chaos that one realizes that the tag ‘Venice of the East’ does Alleppey injustice. Perpetually carrying the fascinating look of a forest having just emerged from a spell of rain, the region is famous for its toddy shops, punted boats, coir industry, paddy fields, the floating villages, and houseboats!
