From The President’s Desk
First here’s a bit of news about myself. Got appointed as Advisor, Dr. Abdul Kalam Centre Lucknow. Lets see what this entails, but will do the best I can.


And here’s some news for our IBG members and associates. IBG has signed an MOU with IBPC, the Indian chamber of commerce in Dubai . IBPC has the cream of Dubai businessmen, mostly Indian origin. We will identify areas of interest to IBPC members and get them to interact with our members who have similar business interests. Priority of course will be to IBG paid members, but others can participate too . As we all know, Dubai is the gateway to the outside business world, and especially Indians in Dubai are very active and connected worldwide. They can not only buy for UAE requirements, but also as a conduit for world markets .

We also recommend Indian businesses to have a leg outside the country to facilitate business growth. You need not just be a local player. Take your product to the world. IBG will soon offer the facility to our members to set up a company/office in Dubai. We will be the front end in Mumbai for a large Free trade zone of Dubai. All formalities to start a business in Dubai free trade zone will then be done sitting here in Mumbai.

I look forward and wish you all a great 2017
- Vikash Mittersain
IBG Founder & President,
