As mentioned earlier, it will be an opportunity for the Indian private sector and key institutions like the Exim Bank of India to identify priority areas and key projects for Indian investment and partnership with a long-term commitment to the region. We are inviting projects from the East African countries for discussion at the Conclave.

The engagement between East African region and India isn’t an infant one. Both the regions have a direct interest to each other in terms of politics and economy. India has enjoyed historically close economic ties with the East African countries and much of it is through the investment-led trade. The East African region has a huge potential in terms of business and investment opportunities. The Conclave aims to bring out the best of this region to the world.
