across the Middle East, North
Africa and neighbouring
regions attended the 1st

Swiss pharmaceutical company
Hoffman La Roche, the world’s
largest biotech company and
leader in biotechnology, the

issues arising in the production of
biosimilars, and the need for clear

The UAE is
home to a series
of influential
and rich Indians
who have,
in their own
inimitable style,
shaped the way
they live, work
and do business in this country.
Whether these are big businessmen
or wedding planners, banking
professionals, or sports stars, the
individuals on our pages have
woven a few threads of their own
into the multicultural tapestry of
the UAE, each bringing a little bit of
India to the way things work here.
There were stories of struggle of
two or three years, sometimes
even more. With the advantage of
hindsight, they are now corporate
lore, but for those now in the
throes of personal struggles,
sans foreknowledge, they are
inspirational.
Earlier after being featured
amongst the 100 Most Powerful
Indians in the Gulf for two
consecutive years 2011 and 2012,
this year Mr. Thumbay Moideen,
Founder President of Thumbay
Group has been featuredin the first
ever listing of 50 Richest Indians
in the GCCwhich was exclusively
compiled and published by
ArabianBusiness dated February
10, 2013.
The list of 50 Richest Indians in the
GCC also shows that Indians are
playing a vital role in boardrooms
of both International and local
banking and retail sectors operating
in the region. But, if anything, the
Arabian Business Rich List shows
just how far the Indian diaspora
has become enmeshed in Gulf
Society with the region’s 2.5 million
expatriates working in every sector
imaginable.
