Prime Minister Narendra Modi, along with South African President Jacob Zuma, attended the India-South Africa business meet to explore industry-to-industry ties between the two countries for greater economic gains.

This is his first visit to mainland Africa and is also the first prime ministerial visit from India to South Africa since the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh arrived in 2013 for the G20 summit in Durban.
