Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced the establishment of a new Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) office in Dubai soon.

PM Modi, who arrived in UAE, made the announcement at the 'Ahlan Modi' diaspora event in Abu Dhabi while highlighting the achievements in the education sector.

Speaking at the event, Prime Minister Modi said, “More than 1.5 lakh Indian students are studying in UAE schools. The master's course was started at the IIT Delhi campus in Abu Dhabi last month and a new CBSE office will be opened soon in Dubai. These institutions will help provide the best education to the Indian community here.”

PM Modi, who arrived in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday, received a ceremonial welcome upon his arrival. He held meetings with UAE President Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan which saw bilateral agreements signed between the nations.

During his visit, PM Modi also interacted with the first batch of students from the IIT Delhi-Abu Dhabi Campus. He lauded the project for bringing the students of two countries together.

PM Modi termed it as a new chapter in bilateral collaboration between India and the UAE that brings the youth from the two countries together.

Notably, the opening of an IIT Delhi campus in the UAE was envisioned by the leadership of India and the UAE in February 2022.

As per an MEA statement, the project is a “collaboration between the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT-D) and Abu Dhabi Department of Education and Knowledge (ADEK) that aims to provide quality higher education opportunities to students globally.”
