The last 12 editions of the conclave have witnessed successful participation of heads of state, ministers, business leaders, financial institutions and investment agencies from both the countries. It is India’s largest Africa-focussed business events and has identified several opportunities for both the countries to fulfil their business and developmental needs.

There will also be several country-focused sessions that will allow delegates to gain in-depth insight into their areas of concentration.

The first CII- EXIM Bank Conclave on India Africa Project Partnership was held in the year 2005. The significance of the summit was highlighted by Former President of India Pranab Mukherjee during his keynote address at 5th CII EXIM Bank Conclave in 2009. He said, “The conclave has become a prestigious event for Indian and African governments and industry to meet and explore new avenues of partnerships. The annual gathering enables the Indian and African leadership to take stock of the progress of the partnership and address future needs in this regard”. The event therefore has emerged as the pioneer event in enhancing economic engagement between the two regions over the functioning of its last 12 seasons.
