Namaskar Africa is regional flagship programme organised by FICCI in partnership from Ministry of Commerce & Industry, Government of India. It started with a India-Central Africa Regional Business Forum in Republic of Congo.
Looking at the strong response from African as well as Indian industry and the demand for increasing the scale of the programme, it expanded to include 3 critical components of exhibition, conference and B2B’s with an objective to reflect India’s engagement cutting across trade, investment, technology transfer and capacity building.
This helps Indian industry to connect with the private sector, government and related institutions in the country where it is hosted as well as the neighboring countries that participate in it.
In partnership with the regional African body and the bilateral chambers/business associations of the participating countries, this initiative rotates in various regions of Africa.
Successful regional shows have already been held in Central, Western and Southern region of Africa. Namaskar Africa at Ghana focuses on the West Africa regional block. Ghana is the focus country with participation expected from neighbouring countries like Benin, Burkina-Faso, Cameroon, Congo, Cote-d-Ivoire, Gabon, Liberia, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra-Leone, Togo.
