NEW DELHI Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA), the sovereign wealth fund of the UAE, on Monday expressed “keen interest” in increasing investment in India, especially in infrastructure.

Hamed discussed the investment opportunities with Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma. “We will be very happy to see your participation in India’s infrastructure building,” Sharma said.

The countries have agreed to set up a joint working group to facilitate the flow of investments, commerce and industry ministry said. “Keeping in mind the worsening investment climate in developed nations both the leader agreed that UAE and India should engage more,” it said.
