Vice President of India, Mr. Hamid Ansari is leaving to North African nations of Morocco and Tunisia on a 5 day visit. During the visit, he will hold deliberations with top leaders of both the countries, with an aim to strengthen bilateral relations and explore new areas of co-operation. His visit comes as India is seeking to give a fresh fillip to its age old relations with Africa and is taking place close on the heels of the India-Africa Forum summit held in October last year in Delhi in which heads of government of 54 nations across Africa participated to give a new thrust to the partnership.
Mr. Ansari will be in Morocco from May 30 to June 1 at the invitation of Prime Minister Abdelilah Benkirane and the two leaders would jointly launch the India-Morocco Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Rabat. During the visit, a number of MoUs will be signed in areas like education, IT and communication technology sectors, focusing on “capacity building and cultural exchange”. Than after Morocco, Ansari will visit Tunisia from June 2-3. There, Ansari would deliver a keynote address to the Tunisian Diplomatic Corps and leading scholars and think tanks at the Tunisian Institute for Strategic Studies. The Vice President would return to the national capital on the morning of June 4.
