Africa, in aggregation, represents one of the fastest growing markets in the world. With a projected average growth of about 5 per cent during 2013–25, it is second only to emerging Asia and the Middle East. The CII-McKinsey study focuses on how Indian industry can collaborate with African nations to bring mutual economic benefits while pursuing a development programme. It also highlights the key role the Indian government could play if Indian industry is to succeed in Africa. The report was released during the 10th CII-EXIM Bank Conclave on India-Africa Project Partnership held on 9-11 March, 2014 at New Delhi.
