India’s Modi heads to Africa with an eye on China


NEW DELHI: India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi heads to Africa on Thursday, seeking to boost his country’s economic influence in a region long dominated by rival Asian power China. India has been working to improve ties with African nations as it vies for a greater share of the continent’s natural resources. Last year, it hosted a major summit of the Africa’s heads of state in New Delhi. Modi will head first to Mozambique, marking the first visit by an Indian prime minister in 34 years, before traveling on to South Africa, Tanzania and Kenya.
