14th Conclave on India-Africa Project Partnership Opens in New Delhi with Morocco's Participation

The 14th edition of the Conclave on India-Africa Project Partnership kicked off Sunday afternoon in New Delhi with the participation of more than 37 African countries, including Morocco.

The Kingdom is represented in the three-day event by a delegation led by minister of Industry, Investment, Trade and Digital Economy, Moulay Hafid El Alamy.

"The conclave is intended to build sustainable partnerships between India and Africa," El Alamy told MAP, noting that Africa has large infrastructure needs, with 57% of the African population being off-grid and 37% without access to drinking water.

Over the last 13 editions, the conclave has seen the participation of eminent dignitaries from across Africa and India, who have actively built bridges to strengthen the partnership between the two regions.

With the multi-faceted involvement of Heads of State, ministers, business leaders, financial institutions and investment agencies, the conclave has proven to be a one stop shop that caters to the interests of both business and political stakeholders, alike.

The event is organized by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in partnership with Exim Bank and with the support of the Indian ministries of External Affairs and Commerce and Industry.
