AFRICA: The next frontier for Indian business !
Edelweiss India Conference (India Discovers Africa) Building bridges, broadening horizons

14th & 15th March 2011- Trident BKC, Mumbai, India

Conference Theme:
As he set foot in the beautiful Africa, one of the greatest explorers, David Livingstone exclaimed: "Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flights". The continent with richest reserves of natural resources is much more than its scenic beauty and wild weather. We explored the `Theme Africa’ bringing together investors, corporates, thought leaders and opinion makers, highlighting it as the next economic growth driver for the world and, in particular, for Indian businesses.

As we believed that going ahead, India will provide opportunities for African corporate houses to raise capital, tap new markets and seek collaborations, we hosted special sessions for Indian investors and businesses to highlight their views and ideas on the Africa opportunity for India. We brought together representation from fund management houses from India and across the world, together with marquee dignitaries from both India and Africa.
