Gautam Adani meets Uber CEO Khosrowshahi, hints at collab


NEW DELHI: Billionaire Gautam Adani met Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi during his visit to India and expressed the possibility of future collaborations between their companies.

In a post praising the Uber CEO on X, Adani said, “Absolutely captivating chat with @dkhos, CEO of @Uber.

His vision for Uber’s expansion in India is truly inspiring, especially his commitment to uplifting Indian drivers and their dignity.

Excited for future collaborations with Dara and his team! #UberIndia.”

In response, CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said, “An absolutely terrific conversation with @gautam_adani over a delicious breakfast about India’s phenomenal growth and rising entrepreneurship. @Uber is committed to scaling up shared mobility and accelerating transition to EVs — looking forward to take our partnership to the next level.”

Uber CEO arrived in India earlier this week. On February 22, the ride-sharing platform Uber entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Open Network for Digital Commerce (ONDC) to investigate potential integration with the network, aiming to broaden the spectrum of mobility options available on the Uber app.

Dara Khosrowshahi also met external affairs minister S Jaishankar who praised the CEO’s optimism in a post on X on Friday which said, “encouraging to hear the optimism of Uber CEO @dkhos on doing business in India.

The world takes note of the transformation of the last decade. And awaits the coming opportunities. Good to know that he even tried his hand at cricket.”

In December 2023, it was reported that Adani group was planning to invest $1 billion in its green energy arm.

Meanwhile, Uber is working on going green to replace its fleet with electric vehicles. Earlier this month, the company announced that its environmentally friendly global electric vehicle service, Uber Green, has been launched in Delhi.
