The Impact of India's Renewed Africa Engagement

9 March 2011 - 8:00am to 9:15am

Chatham House, London


Alex Vines OBE, Research Director, Regional and Security Studies; Head, Africa Programme, Chatham House



Though India's relations with Africa receive less attention in the West than China's, sub-Saharan Africa's exports to India have almost trebled in the last five years and Indian-African business links - particularly in energy resources, precious metals and uranium - have boomed. India is also emerging as a non-Development Assistance Committee (DAC) donor and Africa has benefited. The speaker will explore the nature and scope of India's Africa footprint, including the extent of its diplomatic and military efforts.

This event is strictly by invitation only.

To enable as open a debate as possible, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
