Prime Minister Narendra Modi participated in the first virtual I2U2 Summit on July 14, 2022.
The I2U2 is a four-nation grouping, where “I” stands for India and Israel, and “U” for the US and the UAE.
PM Modi was joined by United States President Joe Biden, Israeli PM Yair Lapid and UAE President Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
The main focus of the virtual meeting was on food security crisis and clean energy.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) also announced an investment of USD 2 billion to develop a series of integrated food parks across India to help tackle food insecurity in South Asia and the Middle East.
This I2U2 grouping was conceptualised during the meeting of the foreign ministers of the four countries held on October 18 2021. I2U2 will bring together countries, governments and the private sector to tackle challenges.
