Economic diplomacy with India is the focus area of South African government: Dr. Manzini

Tuesday, October 09, 2018

“India and South Africa cherish historical relationship dating back to the colonial days. Our freedom struggle was inspired by the teachings of India’s Father of Nation Mahatma Gandhi. The year 2018 marks the 125th year of the Pietermaritzburg railway station ‘incident’ involving Mahatma Gandhi. We would like to take forward this historical relationship. Even though South Africa is a small country, we have something to offer to our big brother, India,” said Dr. H N Manzini, High Commissioner-Designate of the Republic of South Africa in India at an interactive meeting with World Trade Centre Mumbai on October 4, 2018.

This is the maiden visit of Dr. H N Manzini to Mumbai after being appointed High Commissioner of the Republic of South Africa in India.

Speaking on this occasion, Debasish Mallick, Deputy Managing Director, EXIM Bank of India said, “EXIM Bank assures all possible support to Indian companies investing in South Africa.”

Earlier in her welcome address, Rupa Naik, Senior Director, MVIRDC World Trade Centre Mumbai said, “South Africa is the second largest trade partner of India in the African continent after Nigeria. Today, the bilateral trade volume stands at USD 10.66 billion and I hope this to double in the next three years under the leadership of Dr. H N Manzini.

Naik invited Dr. H N Manzini and business delegates from South Africa to participate in World Trade Expo 2018 at the end of October 2018 and the 8th Global Economic Summit, which is scheduled in March 2019.
