India has looked to its former ambassador to lead its preparations for Expo 2020 Dubai. 

Navdeep Singh Suri, who was until very recently India’s Ambassador to the UAE, has assumed the responsibility of his country’s co-chair of the Expo 2020 Dubai committee.

"We hope to curate some wonderful content that will showcase our country’s achievements and diversity at the India Pavilion," Suri, a recipient of the UAE's Order of Zayed II honour, told Emirates News Agency, WAM.

Dr Sangita Reddy, President of the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry, FICCI, said, "I look forward to his [Suri’s] valuable inputs to help showcase our nation’s strength and achievements at the Indian pavilion."

FICCI is the industry partner of the Indian government for its participation in Expo 2020 Dubai.

Suri has been one of the foremost Arabists in India’s diplomatic corps and was Ambassador in Egypt and High Commissioner in Australia in addition to his most recent tenure in Abu Dhabi.

After retiring from the Indian Foreign Service in September last year, Suri became Distinguished Fellow and Director of the Centre for New Economic Diplomacy at the Observer Research Foundation.
