His Excellency Navdeep Singh

Over the last few years, the Government of India has made a determined effort to promote Yoga, Ayurveda and other forms of traditional Indian knowledge. The declaration of June 21 as the International Day of Yoga, the celebration of this occasion by people around the world, the growing consciousness about the benefits of Ayurveda and holistic well-being are only a few of the key outcomes of this approach. At the Embassy of India in Abu Dhabi and our Consulate in Dubai, we have tried to play our own part in promoting Yoga and Ayurveda through a close engagement with local health authorities, specialists and practitioners, Indian community organisations and other stakeholders.
2. As part of these efforts we are delighted to support the First International Ayush Conference and Expo — Dubai which would be held at Dubai's prestigious World Trade Centre on 9-11 November, 2017. I would like to congratulate the Science India Forum and the Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Sidha and Homeopathy doctors of UAE for their initiative to organise this event and for their untiring efforts to promote these disciplines.
3. I trust this conference & expo will turn out as a significant event with exciting and multidisciplinary AYUSH scientific sessions. I hope that delegates will take advantage of this opportunity to expand knowledge and share experiences with other participants. This conference will also enhance the cooperation between practitioners, NGOs and governments of various countries to promote AYUSH. The AYUSH expo shall showcase the industry leaders of Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Sidha & Homeopathy. It is an ideal opportunity for the AYUSH business houses across the globe to display their products and services. I am confident that the health conscious public of UAE & Middle East will not miss the chance of meeting AYUSH experts at Dubai.
4. I wish the upcoming International AYUSH Conference & Expo — Dubai, the very best, and invite AYUSH stakeholders from India and abroad, to take advantage of this mega event. Let us join together to make this conference a great success!
