As China’s slowdown impacts ties with Africa, India is seeking to step in and boost political and economic relations with the continent, DW reported. The upcoming India-Africa Summit may offer a key opportunity to do just that. It is being touted as India’s largest ever Africa outreach. From October 26 to 30, New Delhi plans to host representatives of all 54 African states in the “India-Africa Forum Summit” or IAFS, the third top-level meeting of its kind to be held since 2008 designed to strengthen bilateral relations. Over 40 heads of state or governments have already confirmed their participation in the five-day forum.
