Modi's Four nation African tour

8 July 2016

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is in South Africa from 8 to 9 July 2016 on his latest stop of a four-nation Africa tour to raise India's economic profile on the continent.

Modi will meet South African President Jacob Zuma today and later meet with members of South Africa's community of Indian origin, which numbers more than 1 million people.

The South African Presidency says South Africa wants to strengthen economic ties with India. India is South Africa's sixth-largest trade partner.

On Saturday, Modi is expected to take a train journey to commemorate Indian independence leader Mohandas K. Gandhi. Gandhi's experience with racism while living and traveling in South Africa as a young man shaped his decision to resist racial segregation with nonviolent protest.

Modi has already visited Mozambique and also will travel to Tanzania and Kenya.
