The government of India is being represented by the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA), Tea Board India, Coffee Board India, Coconut Board of India and Cashew Export Promotion Council.

During her visit, Badal will meet the UAE's minister of food security to discuss ways and means to further enhance cooperation between the two countries in the field of food processing.
