Namaskar 2017 conference opens in Accra

The Indian High Commissioner to Ghana, H.E Birender Singh Yadav, in a press conference on Monday, August 14, 2017, has applauded the Ghanaian Government for the ‘1-District, 1-Dam project’.

H.E Birender Singh Yadav also added that “India assisted in building the Jubilee House which sits among the top 10 Presidential Offices in the world. Today, India and Ghana are together doing the Tema-Akosombo hydro project.”

'Namaskar’ is a respectful salutation in India – precisely why the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), the largest and oldest apex business organization in India, has titled the regional flagship programme as ‘Namaskar Africa’ – an event that will see government officials and business delegations from India and West Africa in full attendance.

The event, which started with an India-Central Africa Regional Business Forum in the Republic of Congo, is held in partnership with the Government of India. This year, it will be organized from August 16-17, at the Ghana International Trade Fair Centre, Accra, Ghana. Considering the phenomenal response from the African as well as the Indian industry and the demand for increasing the scale of the programme, the sessions have been expanded to include three components - two-day Exhibition, International Business Conference, B2Bs and B2Gs.

This edition is being organized in partnership with the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI), the regional African body and bilateral chambers/business association.

The initiative rotates in various regions of Africa and successful regional shows have already been held in Central, Western and Southern regions of Africa. Namaskar Africa 2017 at Ghana emphasizes on the West Africa regional block. Ghana is the focus country with participation expected from neighbouring nations.

The Times of Africa, an international business magazine, that aspires to ‘Bring Africa to the World,’ in collaboration with Africa1 Media, a professional services firm that aims to empower businesses by launching them on to an international stage, have been entitled to the exclusive media partner of this extremely coveted event. Africa 1 Media are the official distributors of the ‘Times of Africa’ magazine.
