Africa, once termed a dark continent is today a vibrant region, pulsating with entrepreneurial energy. India has had centuries of trading relationship with Africa because of the proximity between the two. Today, after regional feuds and wars, the region is at last at peace with itself.

The continent offers every raw material that India needs - from diamonds to gold, oil & gas to various minerals and metals. And India has the technology that Africa needs - Appropriate, Accessible and Affordable. The bilingual magazine in English & French was launched to supplement the efforts of FOCUS AFRICA programme of Ministry of Commerce.

The magazine, in the last eight years, has actively promoted the India-Africa Partnership Enclaves, the highly-focused events and most strategic events of bilateral trade, which is now at an all time high.
