The Conclave aims to serve as a platform for dialogues between India and the 16 Southern African countries, which are members
of Southern African Development Community (SADC), to further strengthen the developmental partnerships. The event will also focus
on economic and commercial deliberations through Business to Government (B2Gs) and Business to Business (B2Bs) engagements.
It will be a platform for Indian and African private sectors and key financial institutions to identify priority areas and special
projects for Indian investment and partnership, with a long-term commitment to Southern Africa.
Indian companies are already present across the African continent and there is a growing interest to develop a strong economic partnership
focused on Southern Africa. Over the past several years, Indian companies have proven their excellence in multiple sectors and have
developed a sustainable and proactive engagement with local economies, industry and communities in Africa, bringing significant gains
to both sides. India has successfully applied its ‘Triple A’ technology (Affordable, Adaptable, Appropriate) across the continent and
aspires to expand its footprints by forming win-win partnerships with the region.
The two day conclave will involve Business Conference, Exhibition, B2B meetings, Ministerial interactions, Networking Dinner, etc.
