EAM Sushma Swaraj hands over symbolically e-Rickshaws to Ambassador of Senegal El Hadji Ibou Boye

@MEAIndia
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj handed over symbolically e-Rickshaws to Ambassador of Senegal El Hadji Ibou Boye in New Delhi. Mrs Swaraj along with Ambassador of Senegal took a short ride in the e-Rickshaw to experience the ease of mobility that the vehicle would bring for the common man. 

India is supplying 250 e-Rickshaws with lithium-ion batteries on grant basis to Senegal, responding to the request of President Macky Sall of Senegal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. India has seen a surge towards battery powered e-Rickshaws in the recent past. 

The supply of 250 e-Rickshaws is expected to assist Senegal in adopting clean and efficient energy sources in the area of urban public transport.


India is committed to fulfill its role as an important partner for Africa’s development, especially through the initiatives under the India-Africa Forum Summit. 


India’s relations will continue to be guided by 10 principles of the engagement with Africa outlined by Prime Minister earlier this year.
