Embracing new opportunities at the India–Africa Partnership Summit
The vision of a close partnership of vibrant India and resurgent Africa took another step forward in the third edition of the four day IAFS summit. The partnership was based on principle of equality, mutual respect and mutual benefits. This four day summit which was held during 26-29th Oct 2015 enabled consultancy at the highest level between the heads of the government of 54 countries of Africa and the Government of India. Mrs. Shushma Swaraj, Minister of External Affairs was the Chief Guest of the business forum on 28th October. The event was moderated by President CII, Mr. Sumit Mazumder with remarks from Dr. Jyotsna Suri, President FICCI and Mr. Anil K Agrawal, past President, ASSOCHAM.
Shimla Hills also participated in this summit. Two delegates, Mr. Kundan Singh and Ms. Aditi Gaur represented the company. We observed that there are great opportunities of growth and development in the agriculture sector. Agricultural cooperation between both the countries, offers great potential according to the leaders on both sides.
We are already doing agri-business with Nigeria, Madagascar, Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt. This summit acted as a platform which provided opportunity of B2B meetings with representatives of different countries. Also, we observed good opportunity of business in Malawi after gathering knowledge of the quality of products. We intend to take our relationship to the next level.
The India-Africa partnership will definitely behave as a good accelerator of ‘Make in India’ initiative. Although agriculture and pharma were the priority sectors; Technology, Mining, Machinery and Pharma were also given emphasis.
