Tackling the terror menace
'How to curb terrorism' was one of the key focuses of PM Modi’s visit to Africa.
Africa has seen several terror-related problems due to threat from the Sunni Islamic State.
PM Modi's ambitious 'Make in India' project
PM Modi during his visit to Africa met several top defence businesses to set up a manufacturing base in India.
This move by the PM could boost businesses in India and South Africa for export to other countries.
Pact for food security
The trip was quite an important one in terms of food security.
India signed an agreement for the import of pulses from Mozambique.
According to experts, the pact will help India tide over shortage of pulses in the country that has led to a spurt in prices.
