19th CII India Africa Business Conclave 2024

August 20 - August 22

Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is organizing the 19th edition of the flagship CII India Africa Business Conclave from 20 – 22 August 2024 at Hotel Taj Palace, New Delhi. The Conclave is organized in partnership with the Ministry of Commerce & Industry and the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India.

Since its inception in 2005, the Conclave has emerged as one of the largest congregations of senior ministers, policymakers, and business leaders from Africa and India, cutting across sectors. Over the last 18 editions, the Conclave has hosted 39 African Heads of State and 563 Ministers from different African countries, shaping policy dialogues of the business engagement between the two regions. From the Indian side, top political, government and business leaders have actively participated at the Conclave.

The business and economic relationship between India and Africa have undergone a significant transformation, driven by increased trade and growing investments. While bilateral trade has flourished and crossed the $100 billion dollar milestone in fy2023-24, Indian investments to the region has also witnessed steeper trajectory in dynamic sectors. The implementation of AfCFTA has also further enhanced the prospects for increased intra-African trade and deeper economic integration, offering Indian businesses with emerging avenues for expansion and collaboration.

The 19th edition of the Conclave will aim to serve as an instrument for Africa’s growth and the role of India-Africa partnership in regional and global value chains integration. Besides bilateral, trilateral, and regional discussions, the Conclave will focus on some of the key areas of partnership and emerging opportunities in Agriculture & Food Processing, Defence, Digital Partnership, Financial Partnership, Healthcare & Pharmaceuticals, Infrastructure, Power and Energy, Quality Ecosystem, Skill & Capacity Development, and others.

While the Conclave will retain elements such as business conferences, exhibitions, and B2B meetings, we are introducing the option of product launches during the event to reflect upon the AAA approach of Indian business towards Africa – Affordable, Adaptable, and Appropriate.
