Shaping a more equitable world order is considered a major challenge before India and Africa.  Emphasis on shared history.

From our struggle against colonialism and apartheid, we have emerged to jointly accept the challenges of a globalizing world. Even as we combat with common threats – the threat from international terrorism; the scourge of poverty, disease, illiteracy and hunger; the challenge of climate change – and collectively promote the socio-economic advancement of all our people, we believe that India and Africa traverse the same path, share the same values and cherish the same dreams.

A special website was created for the summit.

The third edition of the four day IAFS summit which will take place during 26th-29th October 2015 enables consultations at the highest political level between the heads of government of 54 nations across Africa and the Indian government to give a new thrust to our age-old partnership. It provides an opportunity to not only reflect on the past, but to define the road ahead in tune with the times we live in.

The First Africa-India Forum Summit was held in 2008 in New Delhi, India, while the Second Africa-India Forum Summit took place in 2011 at the headquarters of the African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  Watch videos about first two summits on YouTube.
