3 EDITORIAL Dear Reader, Greetings. We are all aware that the 21st century has ushered in a new economic order in which developing countries have a much bigger and active role to play. In fact, the change that began with China in the 1980s, picked up momentum in India in the 1990s and spread then onwards to Latin America and Africa. The catalysts driving this change have been globalization and economic reforms carried out by countries across continents. Globalization and economic reforms have changed the face of Africa. In the distant past, world trade was dominated by the North. In the not-sodistant a past, trading between the countries of North and South underlined the global world economic order, the pattern of which is fast changing. The undercurrent of the change has been South-South economic co-operation. The economic rise of China and India and their involvement in the development of Africa have been the hallmarks of South-South co-operation. In the current issue of Indo-African Business, T.C. Venkat Subramanian, Chairman and Managing Director of Export-Import Bank of India, writes about India's intensified engagement with Africa. The issue also carries an article by P.R. Dalal, Chief General Manager of Exim Bank, on the role of India's premier financial institution in extending various Lines Of Credit (LOCs) to various countries in Africa, aggregating close to three billion dollars over the years. The cover story of the current issue is on the European Union's engagement with Africa on various fronts, especially infrastructure. An EU-Africa Summit held in December 2007 in Lisbon, chalked up a joint strategy for the overall development of the African region. We carry the report in detail. The issue also covers the proceedings of the Second IBSA (India-Brazil South Africa) summit held in Tshwane, where several Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) were signed. We also carry two reports on Indian companies' involvement in Africa. While Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), India's leading IT services company, has set up a subsidiary in South Africa, Mahindra and Mahindra, the one of country's top automobile firms, has launched a range of global class vehicles in Ghana. The issue also highlights an International Festival of Films on Tribal Art and Culture (IFFTAC), to be held shortly at Indore in Madhya Pradesh. The festival, organize by Vanya, the state's Department of Tribal Welfare is expected to be a great success. We carry an interview with O.P. Rawat, Principal Secretary, Department of Tribal Welfare, in which he talks about IFFTAC and related issues. Satya Swaroop Managing Editor INDO-AFRICAN BUSINESS 05 Nov 7 - Jan 08

4 PERSPECTIVE As South-South Trade Gains Momentum India Further Intensifies Africa Focus Today global attention is riveted on Africa, The reasons for this are the African region's growing appetite for industrial investment and its thirst for expanding trade. Africa has now emerged as one of the world's hottest growth regions. T.C. Venkat Subramanian, Chairman and Managing Director Export- Import Bank of India, in a detailed and lucid write-up, throws light on Africa's immense potential for investment and India's increasing commitment to expanding its trade ties with that region. T C Venkat Subramanian For decades, world trade had been dominated by flows amongst developed countries - the North - and between the North and the developing countries - the South. Of late, there has been a growing importance of developing countries in world trade, with South- South trade getting increasingly an important role. South-South trade has been expanding since the last 20 years, albeit from a small base. The growth in South-South trade has been over 12% during this period, as compared to around 7% growth of North- North trade, and around 10% of North-South trade. Prominence of Africa Region Many countries in the world are increasingly paying attention towards Africa region, which is developing into a region with high business potential. Though the size of the economy and its share (3% in 2006) in world trade is relatively small, at present, the Africa region is increasingly in the limelight. The region has witnessed a cumulative annual growth of 16% in exports and 15% in imports of merchandise trade, and 13% in exports and 14% in imports of commercial services trade, during the period Economic growth in Africa has been driven not just because of oil or mineral wealth. Asia's thirst for competitive exports has spread to African continent too. At the same time, the national Governments are also modifying their policies and encouraging private INDO-AFRICAN BUSINESS 06

5 PERSPECTIVE in 1995 to around 20% in The value of cross-border acquisitions of African enterprises has also reached a record level (US $ 18 billion) in 2006; most of which have been in the form of mergers and acquisitions by Asian firms. Similarly, FDI outflows from Africa have also reached a record US $ 8 billion in 2006, up from US $ 2 billion in It may be said that the growing attention, paid by many countries, towards Africa is due to increased interest in natural resources, more favourable business climate, and conscious strategy to partner Africa in its economic development. According to United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), extractive industries accounted for most of the FDI inflows received by Africa. Most of the mergers and acquisitions undertaken by the Asian multinational corporations in Africa have been in oil, gas and mining industries. investment in viable and profitable projects with a lasting impact on development. African exports have been increasing over the past few years, not only for the oil exporting countries but also for the non-oil-producers. Exports from the region rose from US $ 190 billion in 2004 to US $ 287 billion in 2006, while imports increased from US $ 195 billion to US $ 281 billion during the same period. The sectoral structure of exports by Africa region shows that fuel and mining sector accounted for about 71% of total exports in 2006, followed by Agriculture sector (9%) and manufactures (20%). Direction-wise, Africa's trade was dominated by Europe (41%), North America (22%) and Asia (20%). Within Asia, China and India have been showing increasing business relations with Africa. Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) flows to Africa amounted to US $ 36 billion in 2006 a new record level and twice that of The surge was in large part related to investments in extractive industries, but FDI also rose in various service industries like transport, storage and communications. During the period , Africa region witnessed a cumulative growth of 18% in FDI inflows. Such FDI inflows have also increased their share in Gross Fixed Capital Formation of the Africa region, from 9% India's Contribution to South- South Trade India's directions of trade have also been changing significantly. Concentration of developing countries in India's exports and imports has been increasing. The share of developing countries in India's exports, which stood at around 25% in 1980's have increased to around 43% now. Similarly, the share of developing countries in India's imports has increased from around 45% in 1980's to over 65% now. India's Growing Business Relationship with Africa Region An important development that has characterised India's trade and investment relations with developing countries of the world has been India's growing trade INDO-AFRICAN BUSINESS 07

6 PERSPECTIVE and investment relations with Africa region. The symbiotic commercial relations that have developed between countries from Africa region and India can be assessed from the enhanced two-way trade and investment flows. India's total exports to Africa amounted to US $ 8.4 billion during registering a significant growth of 54% over the previous year. During the period April September 2007, exports to Africa aggregated US $ 5.5 billion, a rise of 33% over the corresponding period last year. India's export basket to Africa is well diversified with no single export tem exceeding a share of 15% in total exports. India's imports have been driven largely by India, the Government of India put in place the Focus Africa petroleum products and gold, which together Programme from the year to enhance India's trade with accounted for three-fourths share in India's total Africa. The main objective of the programme is to increase imports of US $ 11.4 billion from Africa during interactions between the two regions by identifying the areas of During the period April September bilateral trade and investment. The Focus Africa programme 2007, imports from Africa amounted to US $ when first introduced, focused on the Sub-Saharan African region 7.4 billion, an increase of 22% over the with added emphasis on seven major trading partners of the corresponding period of last year. region, viz., Nigeria, South Africa, Mauritius, Kenya, Ethiopia, As regards investment, India has been Tanzania and Ghana. Effective April 1, 2003, the Focus Africa expanding its contribution to sustainable programme has been extended to cover in effect the entire African continent. development through joint ventures. India's emergence as an important investor in Africa is Specific focus products for exports to these countries have been reflected in its rise in approved cumulative identified, which in turn can be broadly classified into the investments in the region. This amounted to US $ following major product groups: cotton yarn, fabrics and other 3.7 billion during April 1996 to October 2006, textile items; drugs and pharmaceuticals; machinery and accounting for around 17% of India's global instruments; transport equipments; and telecom and information overseas investments (US$ 22.1 bn). Mauritius technology. At the same time the Focus Africa programme and Sudan are the two largest destinations in envisages enhancing India's exports to the region through Africa for Indian investments, followed by integrated efforts of the Government of India and its agencies Liberia, Libya, South Africa, Morocco, Nigeria including the Export-Import Bank of India. and Senegal. TEAM - 9 Initiative: Focus on West Africa Policy Initiatives Focus Africa Programme As the countries from the Africa region are emerging as important business partners for With a view to facilitate and further enhance bilateral trade and investment relations with countries in Africa, the Government of India has set in place various policy measures as also an enabling institutional framework. These include, among others, Focus Africa Programme, TEAM- 9 Initiatives, and India-Africa Partnership Conclaves. With a view to provide a special focus to enhancing commercial relations with countries in the West African region, the Government of India has put in place the Techno-Economic Approach for Africa India Movement (TEAM9 Initiative). TEAM-9 Initiative envisages a special cooperation model amongst eight countries of West Africa, viz. Burkina Faso, Chad, Cote d'ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Ghana, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, Senegal, along with India. Under the TEAM-9 Initiative, a cooperation mechanism is envisaged which will operate at governmental, institutional and private sector levels sharing various types of expertise, intellectual and physical resources as well as economic opportunities for promoting welfare, growth and prosperity in these countries. It INDO-AFRICAN BUSINESS 08

7 PERSPECTIVE would thus involve, among others, providing opportunity for education and training in crucial sectors; transfer of critical technologies from India; undertaking specific projects in individual TEAM-9 countries which would have region-wide beneficial impact in the sectors critical for employment and growth, such as agriculture, smallscale industries, pharmaceuticals and healthcare, information technology, telecommunications, transport, energy, etc. putting in place Lines of Credit (LOCs), and identifying priority sectors in the eight countries which would be financed out of the LOCs. The projects financed will increase bilateral trade between Indian and the select countries in West Africa. India-Africa Partnership Conclaves conclaves were also held in Lusaka, Zambia; and in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, during April 2006; in Accra, Ghana, during May 2006; and in Uganda, during June In light of the success of these Conclaves, as also the need to institutionalize the endeavour as key events in bilateral commercial relations, another conclave is scheduled to be held in India in March India Partner in Africa's Growth India is pursuing commercial strategies with Africa that are about far more than seeking resources. The diversified nature of India's investments in Africa highlights India's endeavours to contribute towards infrastructural and manpower development, as also enhancing capacity development in Africa. Recognising the immense potential to enhance trade and investment relations between India and Africa, the Government of India (Ministries of Commerce and Industry, and External Affairs), in partnership with Confederation of Indian Industries, Export- Import Bank of India and African Development Bank, initiated the India-Africa Partnership Conclaves. The Conclaves created platforms for firms from African countries and India to interact and identify potential projects for cooperation. With a view to build upon the achievements of the Conclaves held in India, mini- For India, with countries in the Africa region emerging as important trade and investment partners, and the need of African countries for strategic partners in their developmental and growth endeavours, sharing of experiences in capacity building, investments and endeavours in growth-inducing sectors in Africa could prove to be strategic in fostering and enhancing long term commercial relations as also presence in the African region. Measures to enhance bilateral commercial relations between India and countries in Africa could encompass an integrated approach comprising, among others: Strategic investments and linkages by Indian companies for energy cooperation and energy security; Increased cooperation with countries in Africa for developing / exploring natural and mineral resources, and help enhancing economic value creation; Enhanced cooperation in agriculture sector development in the African region to foster sustainable and equitable development; Enhancing linkages with banks and financial institutions in Africa to foster increased bilateral trade and investment flows; Broadening linkages with trade promotion institutions in the region to enhance bilateral INDO-AFRICAN BUSINESS 09

8 PERSPECTIVE trade flows; Strengthening linkages with investment promotion agencies in Africa to enhance information about potential investment sectors and holding investment promotion events and specialised exhibitions to showcase Indian expertise; Contributing towards entrepreneurship and human capability development in Africa, particularly in the SME and agri-related sectors. Such endeavours could be supplemented by measures such as: focus on ICT sector development; increased participation in multilateral funded projects; institutional building; setting up regional business hub(s) in line with regional trading arrangements in Africa; cooperation with chambers of commerce and industry associations in the region. Role of Exim Bank of India Africa is a focus region for Exim Bank of India. Exim Bank through its comprehensive range of financing, advisory and support services, seeks to create an enabling environment for enhancing two-way flow of trade, investment and technology between India and the African region, in addition to promoting infrastructure development, facilitating private sector development, as also in contributing towards institutional building in the Africa region. A case in point is the Lines of Credit extended by Exim Bank to enhance bilateral trade and investment relations. The LOCs facilitate import of project-related equipments and services from India on deferred credit terms and many of these LOCs are earmarked for infrastructure and related projects. Further, Exim Bank of India supports Indian companies in their endeavour to globalise their operations, through joint ventures (JVs) with local partners. Such support includes loans and guarantees, equity finance and in select cases direct participation in equity along with Indian promoter to set up such ventures overseas. In the African region, the Bank has supported several such ventures in countries such as South Africa, Kenya, Mauritius, Nigeria, Zambia, Morocco, Uganda and Tanzania. These ventures serves to promote value addition, as also contribute to capacity building and capacity creation in host countries. As a partner institution in promoting economic development in Africa, Exim Bank of India shares its experience in the setting up of institutional infrastructure for international trade. In this regard, the Bank has taken active participation in the institutional building process in a number of countries in Africa. Exim Bank of India has representative office in Johannesburg, South Africa, which plays a key role in facilitating economic cooperation with the Africa Region. To give greater emphasis to the West Africa region, Exim Bank has now opened a representative office in Dakar, Senegal, which would facilitate economic cooperation between India and West African countries. In sum, Exim Bank of India, with its comprehensive range of financing, advisory and support services, seeks to create an enabling environment for enhancing two-way flow of trade, investment and technology between India and the African region, while also promoting infrastructure development, facilitating private sector development in host countries, also in contributing towards institutional building in the Africa region.

Currently, Exim Bank has in place 86 Lines of Credit, covering over 84 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Europe and the CIS, with credit commitments amounting to US$ 2.8 billion.. Out of these, 50 LOCs amounting to over US$ 1.75 billion are to Africa covering more than 39 countries. Africa's share in Exim Bank's LOCs is the highest at 63%. This consists of US$ 862 million to Eastern Africa, US$ 699 mn to Western Africa, US$ 95 mn to Southern Africa, US$ 10 mn to Northern Africa and US$ 84 mn to Central Africa. West Africa Due to barriers such as distance from India and the fact that many of the West African countries speak French (and not English), trade and investment flow from India to West Africa was not up to its potential. Exim Bank's LOCs have helped overcome these constraints. The projects financed under Exim Bank's LOCs to West Africa cover a variety of sectors like agriculture, transportation, manufacturing (cement, sugar), energy (generation, transmission and rural electrification) and Infrastructure. For instance, in Senegal, Exim Bank has extended six Lines of Credit (LOCs) to Government of Senegal, aggregating US$ million, for a variety of sectors such as urban transport, agriculture, development of rural SMEs, rail transport, social sector and IT, sector. In Mali, the projects financed under Exim Bank's LOCs to Mali cover a variety of '* sectors such as railway, rural electrification, and farm mechanization and for electricity transmission project from Cote d'lvoire to Mali. In Ghana, the projects financed under Exim Bank's LOCs to Ghana are designing and building project for Seat of Government and Presidency of Ghana, rural electrification, agriculture, communication and transportation. In ECOWAS, Exim Bank has also extended a Line of Credit (LOG) of USD 250 million to Ecowas Bank for Investment and Development (EBID), which covers 15 countries in West Africa, for financing projects in the public sector in the member countries of EBID, such as health and hygiene related infrastructure project, acquisition of bi-directional units of trains, fertilizer project, rural electrification extension project, and urban transport system. Besides operating Lines of Credit (LOCs), Exim Bank extends its own commercial Lines of Credit (LOCs) to various financial institutions and other entities in Africa, such as to PTA Bank (Eastern and Southern African Trade and Development Bank, covering 17 countries in the eastern and southern African region), Banque Quest Africaine De Developpement (West African Development Bank, covering 8 countries in the west African region), East African Development Bank and Nigerian Exim Bank. Exim Bank has been consciously forging a network of alliances and institutional linkages to help further economic co-operation with the Africa region. Exim Bank has taken up equity in African Exim Bank, West African Development Bank (BOAD), and Development Bank of Zambia. Exim Bank s LOCs help the overseas governments/ financial institutions in implementing their developmental projects in key sectors of economy like agriculture, industry, infrastructure, energy, telecom and transportation, using Indian technology and equipment promoting infrastructure development, facilitating private sector development in host countries, as also, in contributing towards capacity building in the Africa region.

11 COVER STORY EU-Africa Joint Strategy on Local & Global Issues The European Union and Africa have agreed to forge a strategic partnership aimed at facing common challenges together, ranging from climate change to development, energy, migration, peace and security, trade and regional integration, and good governance human rights. This Joint EU-Africa Strategy was launched at the 2nd EU- Africa Summit held on 8 and 9 December in Lisbon. The strategy followed negotiations between the EU and the African Union (AU). Based on a deeper and broader political dialogue, Europe and Africa now intend to leave the archaic and narrow minded "donorbeneficiary relationship" behind and create a partnership between equals. The Joint Strategy is expected to enable both partners to work increasingly together on global issues. It will also involve civil society as well as institutions. INDO-AFRICAN BUSINESS 14

12 COVER STORY Africa and the EU will enhance cooperation in the context of international initiatives to counter the illicit trade and to promote the transparent and equitable management of natural resources, such as the Kimberley certification process, the Forest Law Enforcement Governance and Trade (FLEGT) and the Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative (EITI). Africa and the EU will also, together, address issues relating to the fight against corruption, bribery, counterfeiting, money-laundering, taxfraud, as well as other aspects of economic governance. In this context, both sides will take measures to facilitate the investigation and return of illegally acquired assets, including funds, to their countries of origin. On all these issues, Africa and the EU recognise that civil society, the media and democratic institutions have important roles to play in ensuring transparency and accountability. The improvement of economic governance and the investment climate are essential elements to build Africa's economic strength and allow Africa to move away from continuous donor support and find its place in global markets. In this regard, the development of domestic markets and regional integration are key in creating larger and more integrated markets that, in conjunction with enhanced regulatory convergence, will help to attract investment, increase productive capacities and therefore foster sustainable economic growth and development. One of the priorities of the Africa-EU partnership will be to help Africa improve its productive capacities, move up the value-added scale and become less dependent on raw materials and simple processed products, which in the long term is the best way to avoid a deterioration of the terms of trade and participate in, and benefit from, the global economy. Africa and the EU will also, together with other international partners, work to promote fair trade. In order to achieve this, the key goals which will be pursued by Africa-EU cooperation on trade and regional integration will be: (i) private sector development, supported by foreign investments, to strengthen the supply side of African economies; (ii) the development and strengthening of physical infrastructure networks and related services, which are needed for the movement of persons, goods, information; and (iii) trade integration, which is essential to increase both South-South and North- South trade flows. Private Sector Development The promotion of an investment and business friendly environment is a core prerequisite for the development of the private sector, within the framework of a stable political environment and governance-related reform. These efforts should be underpinned by appropriate African economic growth strategies aiming at maintaining macroeconomic stability, promoting regulatory reform and harmonisation, protecting intellectual property rights and standards, promoting investment codes, and establishing credible laws and guarantee systems. In this context, it will also be necessary to address key investment disincentives such as fraud, corruption, money laundering and organised crime. Cooperation between Africa and the EU in this field will aim to promote stable, efficient and harmonised legal frameworks for business, free of red tape, as well as to promote Corporate Social Responsibility. Both sides will cooperate on technology development and transfer, quality infrastructure and skills development in support of the industrialisation process. It will also aim at enhancing appropriate business support services, and facilitate better access to credit, especially for converting activities from the informal to formal sectors, which is also a key contribution to enabling more women to participate in the formal economy and to facilitating investment and business activities by members of diasporas.

Africa and the EU will seek to join for the EU's external and development cooperation efforts to conclude the Doha Development Agenda as policy vis-à-vis the continent. In this regard, efforts should soon as possible. This could involve, in particular, focus on making a key contribution to the achievement of seeking common ground to address key issues for the 8 MDGs on (1) poverty and hunger, (2) universal development, such as reductions in trade distorting primary education, (3) gender equality and subsidies, greater access to the markets of all WTO empowerment of women, (4) child mortality, (5) maternal members, reductions in tariff peaks, better anti-dumping health, (6) HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases, (7) rules, as well as the implementation of reforms in view of environmental sustainability, and (8) the development of facilitating trade and ensuring the security of the supply a partnership for development. chain.

15 COVER STORY Development Cooperation In order to achieve the objectives set out in the present Joint Strategy, partners should urgently work on more predictable and less volatile aid, focusing on results. The EU therefore reaffirms its determination to reach the targets agreed in the context of the Monterrey consensus in May 2005 to increasing ODA volume to individually achieve 0.51% ODA/GNI for those Member States which joined the EU before 2002; to strive to achieve 0.17% for those Member States which joined the EU after 2002 within their respective budget allocation processes, and collectively achieve 0.56% ODA/GNI by 2010 as an intermediate step towards achieving the UN target of 0.7% by By 2010, attaining the 0.56% ODA/GNI should correspond to at least an additional 20 billion in ODA per year, and no less than 50% of this increase will benefit the African continent. The EU will respect and implement these commitments and will take appropriate measures to guarantee a timely delivery of aid commitments towards Africa. Partners will also make further efforts to keep debt at sustainable levels and, where debt becomes unsustainable, consider debt cancellation in the framework of existing initiatives and fora. Africa and the EU will also strengthen their cooperation in the implementation of the Paris Declaration on aid effectiveness. They will further promote alignment and harmonisation of development aid instruments, increase the use of general and sectoral budget support where circumstances permit, and cooperate closely to implement the EU's commitments to promote complementarity and division of labour. The predictability of development aid should be promoted and the EU will work toward a limitation of conditionalities and further move towards result-oriented aid, with a clear link with MDG indicators and performance. In this context, Africa and the EU will also improve and expand their cooperation in the field of statistics so that policies and decisions are made on the basis of clear evidence. Moreover, the two sides fully recognise that development cooperation alone is not enough to achieve these objectives and that non-aid policies on both sides need to be better geared towards attaining the MDGs, including by enhancing Policy Coherence for Development (PCD). To this end, the EU and the AU will discuss how the coherence between policies and initiatives with development objectives could be enhanced, on the basis of stronger commitments on both sides. In order to ensure coherence and complementarity with the work of other international actors, including emerging partners, Africa and the EU recognise the need to broaden their cooperation with third partners through enhanced tripartite dialogue. Similarly, both parties recognise the importance of triangular cooperation for the development of the two continents. Human & Social Development Employment issues, notably social protection, the shortage of employment opportunities and the promotion of decent work in Africa, will be jointly addressed, with priority being given to creating productive jobs in the formal economy, improving poor living and working conditions in line with the UN decent work agenda and integrating the informal economy into the formal. Investments in private sector development will be promoted, looking in particular to youth and women. The service sector will be further developed as this is where women and youth are mostly involved. Africa and the EU will make technology work for employment, and will ensure that infrastructure works to create jobs for Africans, both skilled and unskilled. In addition, attention will be paid to the creation of jobs through micro-finance schemes. As generally disadvantaged groups often benefit substantially from such microfinance schemes they should be actively pursued. INDO-AFRICAN BUSINESS 18

19 OUT-COME The Lisbon Summit, bringing together the European Union and Africa, has offered us a unique opportunity jointly to address the common contemporary challenges for our continents, in the year that we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the European integration and the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the independence of Africa. We have come together in awareness of the lessons and experiences of the past, but also in the certainty that our common future requires an audacious approach, one that allows us to face with confidence the demands of our globalizing world. Since our first gathering in 2000 in Cairo, much has changed. In Africa we have witnessed the creation of the African Union, which offers a new continental framework for addressing African issues and has become a recognised voice for the continent, and of its economic instrument, NEPAD. In Europe, the EU has grown in membership and scope, deepening its process of integration and acquiring new responsibilities in the world. On a global scale, we have today an increased understanding of our vital interdependence and are determined to work together EU-Africa Summit: Lisbon Declaration in the global arena on the key political challenges of our time, such as energy and climate change, migration or gender issues. In recognition of our ambitions, and of all that we share today and have shared in the past, we are resolved to build a new strategic political partnership for the future, overcoming the traditional donor-recipient relationship and building on common values and goals in our pursuit of peace and stability, democracy and rule of law, progress and development. We will develop this partnership of equals, based on the effective engagement of our societies, in order to achieve significant results in our fundamental commitments, namely: the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals; the establishment of a robust peace and security architecture in Africa; the strengthening of investment, growth and prosperity through regional integration and closer economic ties; the promotion of good governance and human rights; and the creation of opportunities for shaping global governance in an open and multilateral framework. We are determined to give this new strategic partnership the necessary means and instruments that will enable it to fulfil the Joint Strategy and the Action Plan that we have adopted today, and to do so we have created a comprehensive and effective follow-up mechanism that can deliver on these goals and show us the results on the occasion of the Third Summit that shall be held in We believe that this Summit will be remembered as a moment of recognition of maturity and transformation in our continent to continent dialogue, opening new paths and opportunities for collective action for our common future.

20 FACE-TO-FACE Infrastructure Key to Indo-African JVs Thierry Delonguemar, Vice-President, Finance, African Development Bank (ADB), believes that infrastructure is would be the key area of collaboration between Indian and African companies. India has great capability if the field of infrastructure, especially the railway. In an interview with Dinesh Chandra, Delonguemar says that India, with its experience, could help Africa build its railways and other transport infrastructure. What prospects do you see for India- African Development Bank (ADB) cooperation in the coming years? The cooperation between India and ADB is not entirely new. India has been a member of ADB for a number of years. While India is a recipient of aid, it is one of the few countries which are providers of aid also. By providing aid India is helping African countries in accelerating their development of the region. One way to do this is to enhance cooperation with the local development institutions, including the ADB and the African Opportunities Galore Africa has a total area of 30 million sq. km with a develop and sustain a longterm export growth.
