- In the last decade, a total of almost US$ 9 billion in concessional credit has been approved for nearly 140 projects in more than 40 African countries by Government of India, with special emphasis on LDCs (Least Developed Countries) and SIDS (Small Island Developing States) partners in view of their special challenges and requirements. So far nearly 60 projects have been completed.
- The Third India–Africa Forum Summit is taking place in a year that marks the 70th anniversary of the United Nations. It is the first since the achievement of 50 years of pan-Africanism and African Renaissance and shortly following the landmark adoption of the Agenda 2063 by the African Union. It is also the first since the landmark 50th anniversary of the Group of 77 last year. The Summit follows weeks after the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) and the deliberations held at the Third International Conference for Financing for Development in Addis Ababa a few months ago. 2015 is also the year when the 21st meeting of the Conference of Parties (COP 21) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Paris will finalize a post 2020 Agreement on Climate Change as also a World Trade Organization (WTO) Ministerial that will be held in Nairobi. India and Africa have worked together to develop a common understanding of our core priorities for an inclusive economic growth to eradicate poverty and allocate adequate resources for sustainable development.
- The Third India-Africa Forum Summit is expected to provide a unique opportunity to celebrate the longstanding friendship between India and Africa and to chart the course of our strategic partnership going forward.
