Deutsche Welle, Germany's international broadcaster, published a commentary on 11 September 2015 titled "India's Modi Sets Sights on Africa" by Gabriel Dominguez.
India will host from 26 to 30 October the India-Africa Forum Summit for representatives from all 54 African countries. This is the third summit since the series began in 2008. Coincidentally, it takes place less than two months before China's Forum on China-Africa Cooperation in South Africa. India's summit may offer some evidence as to how seriously African leaders are looking for alternatives to Beijing's investment model, especially in the wake of the economic downturn in China.
