The South African Institute of International Affairs published on 4 July 2016 a commentary titled "Modi's African Safari" by Elizabeth Sidiropoulos.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit in July Mozambique, South Africa, Tanzania, and Kenya. Last year, he visited Mauritius and Seychelles. The Indian President in June visited Ghana, Cote d'Ivoire, and Namibia. India is clearly reaching out to African nations at a time when the Indian economy is performing better than the other BRICS.
