Enhancing economic and trade partnerships between India and Africa is critical for both economies, especially now when we are striving to get back on the growth trajectory. The two sides share optimum geographical and historical proximity, among other advantages that could yield beneficial results in areas of agriculture, manufacturing, infrastructure and services. Healthcare, education and IT too are high priorities.
The CII – Exim Bank India – Africa Digital Conclave on India – Africa Project Partnership held from 22-24 September 2020 was an important step towards this. The summit witnessed a participation of around 2000 delegates from 67 countries. 26 Ministers from India and abroad also participated at the Summit.
The October edition of the CII Policy Watch highlights the recommendations and suggestions emanating from the conclave for furthering collaboration between these two economies.
