Narendra Modi’s visit continues to make a difference.

The Partnership Summit this week in Jaipur will be attended by our Attorney-General and Finance Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum and Industry, Trade and Tourism Minister Faiyaz Koya.

It is yet another step in the strengthening of relations following Indian PM Mr Modi’s recent groundbreaking visit to Suva.

As the Indian High Commissioner in Suva Gitesh Sarma outlined: This Summit will be mutually beneficial for co-operation between the countries. That is as outlined by Mr Modi and our Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama during their positive meeting here.

Fiji as a result was invited to this annual summit by India as part of the strengthening of ties.

Most importantly, it is an opening of a door to opportunities.

The Confederation of Indian Industry has organised the summit in association with the Indian Ministry of Commerce and Industry. It runs in the Rajasthan capital of Jaipur from Thursday.

This flagship international meeting attracts 1200-1500 delegates every year.

The Confederation says the Summit provides “a platform to seize huge opportunities by fostering links in various sectors which need to be addressed to catalyse and enable growth at the macro level.

“A common platform to leaders from all walks of life to closely examine the synergies that spark the next phase of global growth and play a proactive role in building new bridges to the emerging world by fostering links globally.”

The week’s edition holds a special significance. The year 2015 marks 120 years of Confederation of Indian Industry existence.

Participation in Jaipur provides real potential opportunities for Fiji. This is not just for networking with leaders of India Inc and key Government people. It is also a one-stop-shop for tangible talks on future development.

The participation of Mr Sayed-Khaiyum and Mr Koya in turn shows how seriously our government takes this Summit.

Fiji can of course benefit from working with and building ties with Indian companies which now have global leadership in many areas.

The Indian market is also opening up as a land of opportunity.

As the Confederation of Indian Industry stresses about this week’s Partnership Summit: “Great opportunity to interact with policy makers, investors, industry leaders, trade bodies & associations and entrepreneurs.”

We wish Mr Sayed-Khaiyum and Mr Koya well as they take another crucial step developing ties and opportunities for Fiji with the great nation of India.
