African Development Bank Group’s 2017 Annual Meeting

May 22, 2017 – May 26, 2017 all-day

The African Development Bank Group (AfDB) and the government of India will host the AFDB’s 2017 Annual Meetings in Ahmedabad, the capital of the Indian state of Gujarat.

Following the India-Africa Summit that took place in New Delhi in 2016, the 2017 meetings are meant to highlight the close economic cooperation between India and the African continent and present new opportunities to further develop India-Africa business ties.

India is one of the AfDB’s 24 non-regional member countries, having joined it in 1982. Although it comprises a small share of contributions to the AfDB’s African Development Fund (less than 1 percent), it still serves as a major investment partner to the continent, channeling nearly $7.4 billion as lines of credit mainly through the Export Import Bank of India in order to implement 137 projects in 41 countries.
