The chairperson of the African Union Commission (AUC), Dr. Jean Ping has revealed the identity of the African countries that are the beneficiaries of the four new institutions India has agreed to establish across the African continent. Ghana will host India-Africa Institute of Infiormation Technology; India-Africa  Institute of Foreign Trade will be located in Uganda; Bostwana in the home of India-Africa Diamond Institute; while Burundi hosts India-Africa Institute of Educational Planning. The creation of these training centres, the AUC chief stated, was contained in the agreements signed on Monday, May 23 during the Meeting of the Foreign Affairs Ministers as a prelude to the 2nd Africa-India Forum Summit which ended yesterday in Addis Ababa. The agreements were signed at the AU Commission by Dr. Ping and India's Minister of External Affairs, SM Krishna.

According to Ping, the relationship between India and Africa, initiated with the first Africa-India summit in 2008 has allowed the two partners to stand up to common challenges through the adoption of common positions.
