Forbes Middle East will honour the top 100 Indian leaders in the UAE for the first time, recognising their contribution in public life, society, communities and especially in business.

Applauding the success of these exceptional Indian personalities who have consistently delivered excellence and raised benchmarks in the business world in the Arab region, Forbes Middle East will honor them on June 25.

Minister of State for Human Resource Development Shashi Tharoor and Ambassador of India to the UAE MK Lokesh will be the principal guests for this special evening.
The audience will include some of India's and the Middle East's leading figures from the private, corporate, public and government spheres.


Among the myriad economic developments in the GCC and MENA regions over the last couple of years, Indian leaders have provided unstinting support and made major contributions to the thriving economies.

The Forbes Middle East ranking of the top 100 Indian leaders in the UAE is based on in-depth research and analysis on some of the most influential Indian business owners residing or operating in the region, as well as top C-level executives shaping and driving their companies' success.

"It is a moment of pride for me to see Indian talent and contributions being recognised in their true essence in the UAE by Forbes Middle East. It is our constant endeavor to achieve mutual success in all spheres of our ecosystem in India and the Emirates. Long established strong bonds have enabled significant business and cultural integration between both countries. The results are evident. I extend my best wishes to all leaders on their accomplishments and envision a grand future for both economies," Ambassador MK Lokesh said.

Forbes Middle East's Editor-in-Chief Khuloud Al Omian said the Indian community is adding value to the business landscape with its skills and talents, developing multiple sectors including  retail, media, healthcare, financial services, education, advertising, and  real estate to mention a few.
