A delegation of 83 members including delegates from UAE’s space agency will accompany Al-Nahyan for a meeting scheduled on September 2-3, according to Economic Times.

The space cooperation will add yet another area for bilateral cooperation between the countries. India and UAE already have a close partnership in security and economic issues.

Further, India’s assistance in Mars mission is likely to be more cost-effective to UAE than taking assistance from European countries.

Both countries are likely to discuss and explore new areas for cooperation including defense production, infrastructure, energy, security, counter-terrorism, small and medium enterprise, health, environment etc., according to ET report.
