Besides this, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) is already weaving plans to invest $1 billion in Jio. Notably, both PIF and ADIA have invested around $2.2 Million in Jio Platforms already.

It is believed that if these to new funding deals of Jio Platforms reach to final, the relations between Reliance and the Middle East will grow further, also considering the massive capital infusion of Saudi and UAE’s sovereign wealth funds in Reliance back in June.
