GPS 2017: India-Japan cooperation set to offer several developmental projects for African nations
To extend the benefits of several developmental projects for African nations, the Central government has expressed its commitment through a trilateral cooperation between India, Japan and Africa, which is also a key aspect of the upcoming Global Partnership Summit 2017.

The summit is scheduled to be held at the Aero City, New Delhi from December 11th to 14th, where leaders, diplomats, bureaucrats, intellectuals from various countries will deliberate on an inclusive model of development, in view of strengthening the overall infrastructure from Asia to Africa.

Recently, Union Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi addressed the industry chamber Assocham organised trade and investment forum in New Delhi on the theme of 'India-Africa Trade at 2020 and Emerging India-Japan-Africa Triangular Co-operation', where the Minister said, "Our government is committed to reach out as far and wide as possible, which is why there were so many heads and leaders of African countries who came to India for the last India-Africa Forum Summit."

"In the new India, with a safe and strong economy, we are now speaking of changing the the sense of changing the way that they perceived India up to now," he further added.

Earlier, Vibhav Kant Upadhyay who is the founder-chairman at the Global Partnership Summit had briefed mediapersons over the trilateral cooperation between India, Japan and Africa. During the event, Upadhyay had clearly asserted that apart from Indo-Japan partnership, the Global Partnership Summit would also focus on Africa's developmental model.

Talking about the GPS, he said, "This summit is going to be drawing on the expertise and experience of world leaders in government, business and civil society. This can only lead to a win-win situation for all concerned."

Earlier this year, India had hosted a special session on Indo-Japan cooperation for the development of Africa at an annual meeting of the African Development Bank (AfDB). Not only that, Japan is also keen to collaborate with India in order to minimize the market risks in Africa by strengthening the overall infrastructure and development in the African region.
