AFRICA : 54 Countries, 1 billion people, US$ 1.01 Billion of trade. Imports worth US$ 468 billion include Mineral Fuels, Oils, Machinery, Vehicles including Boats, Ships, Aircrafts, Electronics & Electricals, Iron & Steel & Articles thereof, Cereals, Plastics, Pharmaceuticals, etc.

India’s growing synergy with Africa is evident from the recent trends in trade. The total trade was than $1 billion in 1990-1991 and has grown to $71 billion in 2014-15.

The India – Africa trade has grown significantly in the last decade. India has been exporting to Africa products such as, High Speed Diesel (HSD), Aviation Turbine Fuel (ATF), medicines and pharmaceutical products, vehicles including motor cars and motor cycles, electrical machinery & equipments, mineral/ chemical fertilizers, other motor spirits, tyres used on buses/ lorries, printed books, polypropylene (a polymer used in a wide variety of applications including packaging, textiles etc.), garments, fabrics, household articles of stainless steel and so on. On the other hand, India generally has been importing petroleum oils & oils obtained from bituminous minerals, crude and other non-monetary unwrought forms of gold, coal, copper ores & concentrates, manganese ore, cobalt ores & concentrates, natural calcium phosphates, ground and other different ores, slag and ash, nuts – fresh/dried-in a shell, phosphoric acid, diamonds, unwrought silver, woods and articles thereof, coffee, tea, mate, spices and so on

As a result Indian investments in Africa have multiplied and are currently pegged at around $ 35 billion dollars. The value of Africa’s trade with China was approximately $210 billion in 2013 while that with the United States was $ 85 billion. However recent decline in oil imports from the United States and sluggishness in the Chinese economy may push the Africans closer to India.
