India, UAE to work together to fulfill Indian diaspora dreams: Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said India-UAE ties go beyond trade and both countries will work together to fulfil the dreams of the Indian diaspora in the Gulf country.

"I assure you that we will work together to bring to reality the dreams you see, here and in India," Modi said.

He was addressing hundreds of Indians working in the UAE who had gathered at the iconic Dubai Opera House here to listen to him.

"Our relation with the UAE is not just that of a buyer and a seller. It has become much more," Modi said in his speech in Hindi.

He thanked the Gulf countries -- a home to nearly 3.3 million strong Indian diaspora -- for providing them "a home away from home".

Modi also witnessed through video-conferencing the foundation stone-laying ceremony of the Bochasanwasi Shri Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS) temple on the Abu Dhabi-Dubai highway.

The ground-breaking ceremony of the first Hindu temple in Abu Dhabi was live-streamed to the Dubai Opera House.

Modi thanked Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan on behalf of 1.25 billion Indians for the construction of the temple.

"I believe this temple will not only be unique in terms of architecture and splendour, but will also give a message of 'Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam' (the world is one family) to people across the world," Modi said.

Wooing UAE businessmen to invest in India, Modi said India's leap in World Bank's ease of doing business rankings from 142 to 100 was "unprecedented, but we are not satisfied".

"We want to do better. We will do whatever it takes to make it possible," Modi said.

This is Modi's second visit to the UAE after his trip in 2015.

@rt...your correct. UAE somehow is able to attract better skilled workforce unlike Kuwait. Here 100% is waasta ways and in UAE, waasta is there but much less. Ask anyone in UAE who has got a driving license. Here in Kuwait, we all know. Like that many things. UAE's quality of life is different, people practise all religions, so many diverse cultures stay there....live together work together. Here.....you know restrictions on other religions like Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists,
etc (except for Muslims or Christians). Successful, sustainable, livable countries thrive on diverse religious cultures, freedom, equality, rights, etc.
