India giving top most priority to its relationship with Africa: Suresh Prabhu

Commerce and Industry Minister Suresh Prabhu has said, India is giving top most priority to its relationship with Africa. 

Giving the keynote address at the 13th CII-EXIM Bank Conclave on India-Africa Project Partnership in Delhi on Sunday, Mr Prabhu said, India considers all countries important but African nations have special place in India’s heart. 

He said, Africa is the first priority in terms of foreign policy and other matters. 

The Minister said, this relationship should be further deepened. He said that some countries are creating a world of protectionism and creating tariff and non-tariff barriers. 

He said, developing countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America have yet to benefit from free trade and commerce.

AIR correspondent reports that 35 Ministerial delegations from over 20 countries are taking part in this conclave. The conclave is being held to deepen trade and investment ties. 

During the 3 day conclave, round tables will be held on connectivity and infrastructure, energy security and renewable energy. The conclave will facilitate over 500 business to business meetings.
