    Round Table
    1530 hours

    India and Africa have shared a close relationship that has hinged on the common struggle against colonialism, apartheid, poverty, disease, illiteracy and hunger. This relationship has gained a new momentum in the recent years. Greater economic engagement has been crucial to boosting ties between Africa and India. The third India-Africa Forum Summit, held in New Delhi last year, reinforced India's interest in partnering with countries of the African continent in diverse fields.

    As a partner in its development, India celebrates Africa's achievements. So, on the occasion of Africa Day, observed every year on May 25 to commemorate the founding of the Organisation of African Unity (now known as the African Union), the Institute for Defence Studies and Analysis (IDSA) in collaboration with the African Studies Association of India (ASA) is organising a roundtable on the theme “Partnering with Africa” on Thursday, May 19, 2016 at 1530 hours, in Seminar Hall 1 (Second Floor).

    Shri Birender Singh Yadav, Joint Secretary, West Africa, Ministry of External Affairs will deliver the special address and Shri Jayant Prasad, Director General, IDSA will moderate the discussion.
