New Delhi: Indian aid to Africa is mostly focused on capacity building and knowledge sharing. Total aid to Africa during 2011-2012 was Rs 150 crore ($27.5 million), quite a contrast to just Rs 10 crore in 1997-98. Trade between India and Africa has increased from $3 billion in 2000 to nearly $60 billion in 2011 and the government is planning to increase to $90 billion by 2015.
