FICCI - Trade with Africa can reach US$ 50 billion

07
Apr '08
The buoyant trade between India and Africa, reckoned at US$ 25 billion in 2006-07, can be doubled to US$ 50 billion in five years if the Government zeros in on a 9-point package of measures.

The FICCI Survey saw the participation from 41 companies many of whom are actively engaged in business with Africa. The participating companies present the entire gamut of industries ranging from automobiles, food processing, ceramics, oil and gas, infrastructure, agri-bio products, farm equipment and machinery, sanitary-ware, electrical equipment and machinery, textiles, apparel and gems and jewellery.

The measures suggested are:

-Government should strengthen the trade promotion cell and economic sections in the High Commissions in different African countries and provide more, better and updated commercial intelligence.
-India should look at entering into preferential trade arrangements with more and more African countries and regions particularly SADC, COMESA and ECOWAS.
-Government should further enhance the credit lines extended to African countries as this would only lead to more and more exports from the India.
-There should be more and more interactions between the Indian and the African business communities.
-Companies have laid a lot of emphasis on having more sector specific business meets
-Exports to Africa could be incentivised.
-An 'Africa Promotion Council' should be set in a PPP framework. Such a council should further have sub-councils focusing on each of the five regions in the African continent.
