India’s Africa push: Economic relations secretary in MEA to visit Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya

Dammu Ravi, the Secretary of Economic Relations in the Ministry of External Affairs, will visit Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya from April 7-12, as a ‘reaffirmation of India’s commitment’ to further strengthen its ties of friendship with the three African countries.

During his visit to Rwanda, Secretary Ravi will represent the Government of India at the event commemorating the 30th anniversary of the 1994 Rwanda Genocide (Kwibuka 30) on April 7.

“He is also expected to hold meetings with Ministers and senior officials of the Government of Rwanda,” the Ministry of External Affairs said in a press release.

Furthermore, Secretary Ravi will engage in meetings with ministers and officials of the Ugandan government and will chair a business session involving leaders from Indian and Ugandan industries. He will also interact with the Indian community in Uganda.

Secretary Ravi will then head to Kenya with a delegation comprising officials from the Ministry of Agriculture, Indian agricultural companies, and business chambers from April 10 to 12. This visit is in line with the commitments made during the meeting between Prime Minister Modi and the President of Kenya in December 2023, aiming to explore opportunities in agricultural farming in Kenya.

In Kenya, Secretary Ravi will chair a business session bringing together Indian and Kenyan companies. He will also hold meetings with ministers and officials of the Kenyan government and engage with members of the Indian community in Kenya.
