His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, the President, tweeted on his official handle, “By strengthening our partnerships, we can make new opportunities and operate together to address shared challenges.”

UAE President Sheikh Mohamed, US President Joe Biden, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid participated in the first digital meeting of the ‘I2U2’ Group.

‘I2U2′ denotes the first letters of the names of four countries.

As per a joint statement issued by all these leaders at the end of the summit, the UAE will invest $2 billion to form a series of integrated food parks around India. The project will include “state-of-the-art climate-smart technologies” to lessen food wastage and spoilage, preserve fresh water and engage renewable energy sources.

India will give suitable land for the food parks project and ease farmers’ integration into them, said the joint statement.
