Opportunities from Africa
21 Jul 2022
High-level diplomats from
several African nations came together in New Delhi for a key two-day investment
meet on July 19. Close to 20 African countries with 40 ministers representing
Cameroon, Burkina Faso, Eswatini, Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Gabon,
Equatorial Guinea, Ghana, Niger, Malawi, Mauritius, Sudan, Namibia, Nigeria and
The aim is to encourage
development of private investment from India in African countries. Started in
2005, there couldn’t have been a better time for India.
Lets look at the opportunities India
has, today. This year’s conclave focuses on infrastructure development and
trade finance, education and training, agriculture and food processing,
consultancy services, and healthcare.
Indian companies have steadily
increased their presence in Africa, over the years. Trade between Africa and
India increased from about USD 7 billion to USD 60 billion, from 2001 - 2017,
making India Africa’s 4th top trading partner.
However, bilateral trade between
India and the 48 countries of sub-Saharan Africa dropped from USD 56 billion to
USD 47 billion, from 2020 to 2021. We will not only have to play catch up, but
we will have to manage this more focussed.
Take education and training. Africa
has a large working-age population and a growing middle class both ingredients
for India to add value to. A lot of India’s success came through efforts to
create the right environment for the future generation. Educating and
upskilling Africa’s youth through digital means can help bring overall prosperity.
The private sector is key to
this strategy, particularly in the areas of skill and capacity-building
initiatives, health care, agriculture, and the digital revolution, notes a
report by Brooking. With a determined government ready to support initiatives
in Africa, now is an opportune moment for the Indian private sector.
Advantages for Africa
And both education and skill
development doesn’t have to be expensive. We are well versed in both e-learning
and e-skilling. We have the talent and enough retired experts who are ready to
share their expertise. Unlike Western nations, we are priced affordably. Unlike
China, we have a language advantage, with teaching in English.
Enough and more Indian start ups
offer technology training in very flexible ways. Infyni is an e-learning platform poised
to launch their live online training courses in technology like Python, Java
Microservices, Business Analytics in Africa.
“And with our flexibility and
ingenuity we are able to scale when needed,” says Manoj Sinha, CEO of infyni.
Like they say, a lot is possible

Crypto Currencies Dominate Davos 2022
26 May 2022
A free bitcoin pizza stall were among the treats available
for attendees this year where blockchain and cryptocurrency firms took over its main street.
It was on May 22 that Laszlo Hanyecz used the crypto currency
BTC to buy two pizzas from Papa John’s in Florida, in 2010. Hanyecz paid 10,000
BTC, then worth $41, to buy the pizza. It was the first commodity to be bought
with this digital currency. Today, the value of 10,000 BTC is around USD 300
million. This is after the recent plunge in the market value of cryptocurrencies.
Cryptos had shed around USD 800 billion in
market value as of May 2022. Several crypto currency
companies, nevertheless have taken promotional space at Davos overshadowing bigger
institutions like Bank of America.
But then that is the controversy Bitcoins and
Cryptocurrencies inherently bring.
China has cracked down on cryptocurrencies with increasing
intensity throughout 2021. While cryptocurrency exchanges are legal in the
United States, the US Treasury has emphasized an urgent need for crypto
regulations to combat global and domestic criminal activities.
Experts believe it is likely that paper money will disappear
someday. Experts believe the rails of payments, remittances and many other
areas of the financial services industry will be re-architected to be more
efficient, cheaper and with fewer gatekeepers. They say blockchain technology
seems to be a step in this direction.
Adam Neumann, infamous for running his startup
WeWork into loss has returned with a new startup idea in cryptocurrency called
Flowcarbon. And the company has already raised a total of USD 70 million in
venture capital funding and sale of its carbon-backed token.
Amidst all this, European Central Bank President
Christine Lagarde said Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are “worth nothing.” Lagarde
opined that cryptos should be regulated to protect inexperienced investors.
India has not always been much accommodative, and RBI governor Shaktikanta Das on May 23, 2022
made it clear once again.
“We have been cautioning against crypto and look at what has
happened to the crypto market now. Had we been regulating it already, then
people would have raised questions about what happened to regulations,"
Das told CNBC TV18.
“This is something whose underlying (value) is nothing.
There are big questions on how do you regulate it. Our position remains very
clear, it will seriously undermine the monetary, financial and macroeconomic
stability of India," the RBI Governor added. ~
