The first Confederation of Indian Industries (CII)- EXIM Bank Conclave on India Africa Project Partnership was held in the year 2005. The initiative was launched by the Confederation in partnership with EXIM Bank of India and with the support of the Ministry of External Affairs and the Ministry of Commerce & Industry, Government of India.
Over the last twelve editions, it has emerged as the pioneer event in building partnerships and enhancing the economic engagement between the two regions.
This strengthening of the relationship between Africa and India and the increase in the interest of India in Africa could also be attributed to the fact that Africa is at a critical juncture in its development process and India could play major role in Africa’s growth story.
The Jospong Group’s contribution to the development process was well acknowledged and appreciated by delegates at the conference.
